  • Understanding what makes change happen.
  • Translating and sharing the understanding of what makes change happen.

Enabling Change

  • Engaging and influencing across the system to enable change (in priority areas, places and sectors).
  • Developing and leading approaches that support culture change, system change and behaviour change across the life course.
  • Facilitating, convening, enabling and connecting people and organisations across the system to work together to a shared ambition and purpose.
  • Providing high quality public narrative, marketing and communications to enable change.
  • Supporting people and leadership development across the system.

This is all underpinned by
