As Programme Manager Emma works across a number of Design Council’s growth and innovation programmes.

Emma is currently managing Transform Ageing, a Big Lottery Funded three year programme that will bring together people in later life, social entrepreneurs and health and social care leaders to define, develop and deliver new, people-centred solutions that better support the needs and aspirations of ageing communities.

Initially based in the South West of England, the programme will help local communities to identify, develop and scale effective product and service innovations for a healthy, active and prosperous later life.
