Finlay is passionate about identity politics and social justice. Since joining the Lab in 2016 Finlay has managed the implementation of the ChildrenCount Well-being Survey (9-16) in Torbay and South Devon and supported the development of The Confidence Framework. He currently works on FNP ADAPT, a project using Rapid Cycle Innovation and Testing to develop and refine the Family Nurse Partnership service.
Finlay holds an MSc in Social Policy (Research) from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a BSc in Economics and Politics from the University of Sheffield. During both his undergraduate and masters degrees, Finlay’s research explored the cultural, national and ethnic identities of young people in the UK.
In his spare time, Finlay enjoys playing football and the piano (neither very gracefully).
