Overview

I am a research associate and doctoral student in the Children’s Social Care Research and Development centre (CASCADE) at Cardiff University.

My PhD aims to explore how care experienced children at-risk of criminalisation are supported by the presence of local, multi-agency protocols. This research is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
