Before joining Social Finance Lily worked for a family drug and alcohol court in Leeds, an innovative service designed to improve outcomes for families in care proceedings that have resulted primarily from parental drug, alcohol and domestic abuse.
She holds a BA in German and Italian from the University of Bristol and an MPhil in Comparative Literatures and Cultures from the University of Cambridge.
