Everyone in our team plays an important role in helping to build the foundations of a healthier society.
Portfolio Manager (community engagement)
Louise leads on the ‘streets’ portfolio of projects in our childhood obesity programme.
Louise joined us in January 2021. Her professional background has been in the third sector, working for charities, social enterprises and grassroots community groups that are taking action to address inequalities and injustice, and which advocate the importance of lived experience in change-making processes.
Prior to joining us, Louise worked at Nesta on the 100 Day Challenge programme, where she supported teams across health, social care and the voluntary sector to practically test out their ideas for working together differently.
Louise is working on our ‘streets’ portfolio within the childhood obesity programme, focused on creating and maximising partnerships to improve food environments locally. She is also working across our research and development function to find different approaches to funding that prioritise diversity, equity and inclusion.
