Over the last 17 years Baroness Casey (given name Louise) 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, Baroness Casey has consistently delivered brave and innovative solutions to long standing social problems ranging from homelessness to anti-social behaviour to troubled families.
Throughout this, Baroness Casey has maintained her commitment to the charity sector and has been a driving force in the establishment of the Institute of 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 the United Kingdom’s most isolated communities.
Baroness Casey was awarded the Companion of the Order of Bath (CB) in the Queen’s birthday honours list in 2008 and made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in the Queen’s birthday honours list in 2016. In 2020, she was made a Life Peer in the UK Parliament with the formal title of The Baroness Casey of Blackstock DBE CB.
