I have over ten years experience of conducting research and evaluations with people experiencing social disadvantage. I have an MSc in Social Research Methods and an MA in English Literature.
I have previously worked as a Social Policy Researcher at the New Economics Foundation, where I researched issues relating to social inequality, with a focus on health inequalities in deprived communities. This included an evaluation of a co-produced health project for Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network, and research for People’s Health Trust into the relationship between their grants programmes and individual and community control.
Before this, I was the Research Manager at the homelessness charity Broadway, where I managed a leading research programme in the sector. I have evaluated groundbreaking projects including No Second Night Out and the provision of personalised support to rough sleepers. I have researched complex issues such as boredom in hostels, bullying and harassment, how street drinkers can make positive changes in their lives, how street-based sex working women can be supported towards exit, and how homeless people can be supported to move into, and stay in, work.
I have also worked in policy and research for Alcohol Concern, specialising in dual diagnosis (co-existing mental health and alcohol problems).
