Evidence is a rapidly growing and critically important area of our work, therefore, NASP is excited to announce the appointment of our new Deputy Director of Evidence and Impact, Joelle Bradly. 

Joelle brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the role, she will be working across the organisation to ensure all our work with partners and stakeholders across government, the voluntary and private sectors is informed by the latest evidence to help achieve maximum impact.

Joelle previously worked as a Senior Research Fellow at De Montfort University on Talent 25, an action research programme, following over 400 families and their engagement with creative and cultural activities. Before this she had worked in roles as an Assistant Director at Barnardo’s, heading up the Research and Evaluation Team, and as a Research and Insight Manager for Leicestershire County Council, with a focus on children and families, systems change and engaging with communities who are frequently unheard. She is skilled in both qualitative and quantitative research methods and was awarded Social Value Accredited Practitioner status in 2011.

I'm looking forward to working with the Evidence and Evaluation team at NASP to ensure that work across the organisation is informed by evidence, to build evaluation capacity, and to promote more widely the importance of evidence and learning around social prescribing in order to create maximum impact for communities and places.
