About

Launched in 2001, Rocket Science was founded by four Directors Richard, John, Willy and Bob. 20 years later we are a team of more than 20 passionate expert consultants working across a range of consultancy, research and grant management projects focusing on improving people’s lives. We have supported over 500 organisations using ‘rocket science’ to deliver and improve their services.  

In 2021, we changed ownership and are now fully female owned by Caroline Masundire, Cherri Blissett and Clare Hammond, supported by Richard and John, who are invaluable members of our Rocket Science team in their continuing roles as Directors.

  • Being inclusive and empowering – We foster an inclusive working environment that empowers and inspires our colleagues, clients and partners.


We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive and empowering environment where our Rocket Scientists are able to build and use their expertise and insights to help our clients succeed.
