Dr. Natalie Campbell

Senior Lecturer

Sports Leadership, Education and Society

I have worked in education, grassroots physical activity and elite sport for the last 10 years and have a huge passion for inclusion, wellbeing and people development.


I am a social-psychologist (BPS registered) and work at the intersection of wellbeing, sport, health and inclusion. I like to say that I didn't find inclusive/adaptive/disability sport; it found me. I became interested in sport and physical activity as a teenager, but had always been interested in learning about people and society - especially people who were thought of as 'different'. These two areas collided during my first job as a sports coach and have shaped my career ever since!
