Over the summer we visited Imagination Lancaster for a Design in Place Based Policy Workshop with inspiring colleagues from government and academia. We looked at what is meant by place-based policy, the types of tools and methods that could be used in designing policies for different places and the potential to work in partnership to innovate in place-based policymaking.
It’s coming up to a year since I joined the Policy Lab team, after five years in policy and strategy roles across the Civil Service. I wanted to share some reflections on policy innovation - what I’ve learned, why it matters, and how policymakers can start to get to grips with it

Our mission is to radically improve policy making through design, innovation and people-centred approaches.
We bring multidisciplinary expertise to help teams understand the present, imagine the future and design ways to achieve the policy impact they intend.
Our methods are grounded in evidence, participation and experimentation.
They draw on diverse perspectives, tackle complexity and build consensus.
