Good Help for Families after Covid

In January to Mar 2021, during lockdown3, MA Service Design students worked with MA Data Visualisation students and parents in Camden Council to define what good family help looks like after Covid, with the amazing Becca Dove, Head of Family Support and Complex Families in Camden.

The students’ journey:

Students got to work with a thoroughly inspiring group of Changemaker Parents from Camden, who, facilitated by Angela Tam and Laura Leahy (recent graduates and interns at Camden Council), designed a vision of Good Help for Camden Families after covid, and a manifesto.

Here’s the parents’ story:

Students built on this vision of good help and manifesto to create service proposals relating to three areas: Service Transformation, Disruptive Design and Policy, and Reimagining the Future.

If you have an hour on your hands, this is our presentation to senior leaders from Camden Council, national charities and bodies, working towards implementing the vision and the Service Design proposals.

Silvia Grimaldi says:

“This is one of the most inspiring projects I’ve led, spanning service design, co-design, policy, futures, systems, design vision, design justice.

I worked with an amazing team: Adam Thorpe from Public Collaboration Lab who facilitated the parnership, Veron Lai who led the unit, Megha Wadhawan, Hena Ali and Henrietta Ross.”

Look out for a report coming soon!
