Nicola Pritchard

Nicola works as a Senior Consultant in NPC’s research and consulting team, specialising in systems change and place-based methodologies. Nicola led NPC’s place-based research for the Harpur Trust and Steve Morgan Foundation and authored NPC’s framework for place-based funding. She sits on Save the Children‘s steering group for their ‘funding for systemic change’ programme and is leading NPC’s place-based research in response to Covid-19.
