My role at the Design Council is to support the delivery of effective solutions to challenging, often systemic social issues. Transform Ageing is an initiative for people in later life and those who support them that illustrates how design can deliver different, creative solutions to the challenges and opportunities faced in our ageing population. A partnership programme, financed by the National Lottery Community Fund that is bringing real change into parts of the South West through strong connections, a vast array of skills, great ideas and a passion to make things better.

What I most enjoy about this role is exploring how design can engage diverse groups of people to work collaboratively and innovatively with that simple aim of making things better.
