As Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Zoe oversees our work to improve policy and legislation for children by informing and influencing government ministers, officials and parliamentarians.
She has over 10 years’ experience working in children’s policy to improve legislation for children across the sector, and has expertise in supporting children and young people to have their say on national policies that do and will affect them.
Alongside her role at NCB, Zoe is Policy Review Editor for the academic journal, Children & Society.
Zoe loves to travel and explore different cultures: while studying Social Anthropology at university, she spent time doing research with a youth group for young graffiti artists and comic fans in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Fun fact: As a child Zoe appeared in an episode of Inspector Morse, playing the (non-speaking) part of daughter to a family of murderous brewers.
