Henry is an Associate with a keen interest in insight gathering and developing new scalable solutions, particularly within youth justice and children’s social care.
He recently helped lead our work in Greater Manchester looking into why youth violence in on the rise. Henry believes that solutions in this space must be for 2020 not 2005. Social media and phones have had a large impact on the way we socially interact and the context of violence. As a consequence any solution, including public health approaches, need to ensure they are taking into consideration both the online and offline worlds – which are all part of the same blurred picture.
He has also helped out work in Greater Manchester adapting and adopting Stockport’s Team around the school (TAS) model and Sunderland’s children’s social care system-wide transformation.
Before Innovation Unit Henry worked in the social integration space, developing and testing new solutions.
