Chloe leads work across Innovation Unit’s place based projects in local government and health and social care. She is an experienced researcher, project manager and facilitator and is particularly interested in asset based approaches and how they can be applied and embedded within different sectors, practice areas and organisations.
Alongside colleagues at FutureGov, Chloe is currently convening an Innovation Partnership in Doncaster, bringing together health and social care organisations to define Doncaster’s model of innovation, build skills locally and put learning into practice in three programme areas.
Chloe has extensive experience working in Children’s Social Care, including supporting Wigan Council to adapt and adopt North Yorkshire’s No Wrong Door service and working with Doncaster Children’s Trust and Doncaster Council to develop a new community-led approach to reducing demand at the Front Door to children’s services. Her experience in the wider health and social care sector includes leading the delivery of the Department of Health’s Named Social Worker programme, supporting six local authorities to develop a new model of social work that aims to improve outcomes for people with learning disabilities at risk of extended hospital admission.
Named Social Worker
Between 2016 and 2018, Innovation Unit and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) supported nine local authorities to develop, implement and evaluate a Named Social Worker approach.
Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme
The care system can be transformative, giving young people and their families the support they need at the most difficult points in their lives. But too many young people have a poor experience of the system and poor long-term outcomes, leaving care without the skills, relationships or emotional stability to ready them for adulthood.
Asset-based children’s services
We are supporting Wigan Council to develop a new residential and edge of care service that is inspired by North Yorkshire County Council’s No Wrong Door, and builds from their own ACT and Share innovations.
