About NPC

Andrew Weston

Consultant Research & Consulting andrew.weston@thinkNPC.org

 

Andrew works in the Research & Consulting team, helping charities and funders evaluate, improve and communicate their impact.

During his time at NPC he has worked on a wide range projects. His main focus has been on health, including as one of the authors of NPC’s Untapped potential: Bringing the voluntary sector strengths to health and care transformation, which aims to shape health and care system reform by showcasing how the voluntary and community sector can add value. He has worked with a broad mixture of clients including introducing a new  philanthropist to some of the challenges of the housing sector, and supporting a small housing charity in developing its theory of change. Andrew is currently working on developing a user led approach to help disadvantaged young people identify what digital interventions will best help them.

Through client work and taking part in the facilitation of NPC training days, Andrew has also developed an expertise in creating theories of change. He is currently NPC’s theory of change Champion—an internal role which requires him to keep up-to-date with the latest theory of change best practice, and to promote this throughout NPC.

During 2016/2017 Andrew was on secondment to NPC’s Think Tank and External Affairs team as the Policy and Development officer during this time he combined NPC’s organisational knowledge with the conversations going on in the sector to drive forward its think tank work.

Before joining NPC, Andrew studied for an MA in European Studies: Transnational and Global Perspectives at KU Leuven in Belgium. During this time, he also worked as a freelance researcher for the debate organisers Intelligence Squared, preparing reports on the potential validity of external peace-making, and the effectiveness of new forms of direct action and protest movements.
