Social Work and Social Care

Having spent a number of years in practice working with incredibly vulnerable people, I’m passionate about helping students work with care and precision with those in need of help and support.


I’ve always enjoyed working with people and helping them develop whether in the drugs services I used to work for or with my students now. Seeing people fulfil their potential is incredibly rewarding. My journey from voluntary community work to PhD research with vulnerable young people has taught me so much about good practice and I’m passionate about sharing this knowledge and experience.
