Charlotte Alldritt is the RSA’s Director of Public Services and Communities. Between April 2016 and March 2017 she led the Inclusive Growth Commission. This programme followed on from the City Growth Commission, which she also directed – working with Lord O’Neill as chair – to drive the vision for city-regional devolution and inspire the creation of the Northern Powerhouse. She joined the RSA from the Cabinet Office, where she was a senior policy advisor to the Deputy Prime Minister. There she covered immigration, energy, and housing and planning policy, having previously led the government’s strategy on transparency and open data. Her primary research interests are in information and accountability, and she runs a programme of work at the RSA, OPSN (Open Public Services Network), that seeks to improve the quality and use of data in public services. OPSN published its first report, ‘Empowering Parents, Improving Accountability’ in September 2013 in association with the Guardian. In 2012 she was named a ‘UK Emerging Leader’ by the International Women’s Forum in recognition of her work in social care policy and UK-US collaboration on health care and technology.
