Charlotte Whittaker

2016/17 Fellow

Charlotte co-founded InCommon, a resident-powered welcome programme building community in sheltered housing for older people.

Charlotte was a 2016/17 Fellow mentored by social design expert Emma Southgate. She built on her frontline experience with Anchor Care Homes to develop a new scheme to support isolated older people moving into sheltered accommodation. She also worked on a consulting project brief, set by the London Borough of Hounslow, to build social capital through social enterprise on a deprived estate in West London. Following Year Here, she went on to consult with the Power to Change Foundation.
