Dame Louise Casey

Over the last 17 years Dame Louise Casey has been instrumental in the development of a number of bespoke social policy programmes for Government. Drawing on her experiences of leading a homeless charity shelter, Dame Louise has consistently delivered brave and innovative solutions to long standing social problems ranging from homelessness to anti-social behaviour to troubled families.

Throughout this, Dame Louise has maintained her commitment to the charity sector and has been a driving force in the establishment of the Institute for Global Homelessness, with the aim of delivering an international solution to homelessness across the world.

At the request of the British Prime Minister, she led a review into opportunity and integration in some of our most isolated communities.

Dame Louise Casey was awarded the Companion of the Order of Bath (CB) in the Queen’s birthday honours list, 2008 and made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in the Queen’s birthday honours list, 2016.
