Specialist areas:

  • Social services change in local authorities
  • Corporate planning and service reviews


I am committed to civic engagement in government.

I joined Practice Solutions in August 2011 after 12 years in frontline politics that placed me at the heart of policy-making, creating links across government and across political parties. As an Assembly Member I became the first opposition AM to take through mental health legislation in Wales after successfully negotiating with the Welsh Government, Wales Office, UK Government and Parliament. At Practice Solutions, I work on social services change in local authorities, corporate planning and service reviews.
