Kate joined the team in February 2019, and worked on the Lincolnshire Frailty 100 Day Challenge as well as programmes with NHS England’s Personalised Care Group. Internally, she supported the team to capture their impact and share their stories.
Kate brought a range of experience in different health and care settings, with a particular focus on improving access to services. Prior to her joining the team, she had focused on both sexual and reproductive health, as well as working with young people, through frontline programme delivery, grant management and international programme management. In her role at Nesta she continued to use skills developed as an English language teacher in the UK and Colombia and facilitating workshops in different community settings.
She’s particularly proud of leading work to introduce the Time to Change mental health campaign internally in her last organisation.
Kate currently volunteers with her local Mutual Aid group, supporting people in her neighbourhood who need help during the Covid-19 pandemic. Outside of pandemics, you can find her wandering around London, getting geeky about local history and old buildings.
