Polly works at Mutual Ventures, a consultancy that supports the development of new models of public service in the social sector. Her work currently involves setting up new social enterprises to improve children's social care, including the UK's first housing co-operative for care leavers.
She has served as a trustee and company secretary for Brixton Green, a community owned mutual delivering a £120m development project in partnership with Lambeth Council. Before that, she was part of Viridian Housing's Innovation Team where she was responsible for redesigning services with residents and teams across the organisation and was also co-founder of the first Foodcycle Cafe based on waste food and volunteers outside London.
In her spare time, Polly is a keen cyclist and has recently fallen in love with track cycling at Herne Hill Velodrome.
