Specialist Areas

Service user involvement in research
Social work practice

Research Interests

My research interests cover participatory research, especially the involvement of service users in research, professional practice and the development of child care. My interests in professional practice include both the preparation of students for practice and how best to support social workers once in practice and to contribute to evidence informed practice particularly in the area of child care.

Recently my research projects have included the evaluation of the NQSW and EPD programmes for CWDC. A European Union project on immigration, social work and the police, funding from local authorities e.g. an evaluation of a multi-agency family support team, the impact of a charities values in action, the potential of non-traditional placements and strengthening employer engagement in social work for Skills for Care.
