Tom is a Manager at Social Finance, where since 2014 he has worked on a range of Social Impact Bond and outcomes-focused projects with local and central government and third sector organisations.
Tom has worked with Local Authorities to co-develop outcomes and measurement frameworks for services for adult social care, adults with complex needs, and young people with learning disabilities. He led the performance management of a SIB for young people at risk of exclusion as part of the DWP’s Youth Engagement Fund, and supported Newcastle City Council to secure funding for, design and procure a multi-disciplinary service for homeless adults.
Tom now works on data and practice transformation projects within Children’s services – early years, early help, social care and SEND – to embed the principles of performance management and commissioning-for-outcomes into business as usual within government services.
For two years Tom was also part of the team that supported the co-design and development of Black Thrive, a ground-breaking collective impact model to tackle long-standing mental health inequalities in Lambeth’s black communities. He has a background in social enterprise at Social Enterprise UK and The DoNation, and also worked at the Social Market Foundation, a leading cross-party think tank. Tom holds a BA in Classics from Oxford University.
