Emma is motivated and driven by her passion to improve outcomes for people and delivering sustainable change across the public sector. In recent years she has delivered change in social care, with an emphasis on developing and embedding strengths-based approaches and using behavioural science techniques to underpin and enhance activity.
Emma is passionate about ensuring the voice of the person is heard, and in turn including individuals with lived experience within the the heart of her work. Emma is experienced in working with stakeholders across the public sector and has led multi-agency projects. She has worked with various local authorities in children’s and adult services in a consultancy capacity and been employed by a local authority in both commissioning and transformation roles, as well as working for a CCG to manage a STP wide transformation programme.
Emma has recently developed and managed a programme of work in Adult Social Care in Lincolnshire. This work commenced in 2020 with an initial diagnostic, along with some focussed implementation work with front line teams to improve outcomes for people. More recently the work expanded to include supporting colleagues in the health system in one of the acute settings to develop and embed personalisation in discharge.
Outside of work Emma enjoys spending time with her family and loves taking my two children for days out exploring the local area and the coast in Norfolk.
Emma has been a trustee for a local user led advocacy charity for people with learning disabilities. This rewarding role enabled her to see how the changes being delivered in the public sector can have a positive impact on people’s lives.
