This includes supporting our pioneering work with GMCA and DWP on new models of unemployment support for over 50s and our work with Manchester School of Architecture on Right Place, a study of realising the housing aspirations of those in mid and later life within their communities.
Nicola has always worked to facilitate people to understand the systems they are operating in to create change. Nicola has worked in commissioning and transformational change in local authorities and as a freelance facilitator and executive coach with particular interests in supporting individuals and teams to operate at their best, and on tackling inequalities and promoting social justice.
