What I do

Matthew jointly lead on the Public Innovation in Wales project, which is part of the Wales Public Services 2025 programme.


The project aims to raise awareness of the scale of change needed over the next decade and is creating a space in which radical and innovative ideas for Welsh public services can be identified, developed and potentially scaled and replicated.

Matthew also works part-time for Monmouthshire County Council, one of Nesta's six Creative Councils. He is working on service transformation in health and social care. 

Prior to joining Nesta, Matthew worked for a number of local authorities in Human Resources and Organisational Development. He has a degree in Economics from Swansea University and a post-graduate diploma in Human Resource Management.

It's not just councils that need to think and act differently, this is true of all public services and it's particularly stark when framed by the fiscal challenges highlighted in reports published by Nesta partner, Wales Public Services 2025.
