I am an experienced lecturer, social worker and researcher. I am particularly interested in carrying out research to gain children and parent’s perspectives of social work services. A further area of research that I am interested in is evidence based practice and working alongside researchers, practitioners and policy makers to try to make practice and policy more evidence informed. In July 2018 I completed my doctoral thesis which explores children’s participation in children in care reviews. This is the largest study of its kind which incorporated the views of over 35 participants. I have recently completed a book for Policy Press which considers the extent to which young people and parents are involved in decision making when there are child protection concerns. I have published a number of journal articles which have considered the way in which parents and children are involved in decision making about their lives.
