Profile Summary
I qualified as a social worker in 1998, having worked in residential and community based practice for several years. I practiced with children with disabilities and their families before moving onto managing funding programmes and an advocacy service for children and young people. I began teaching social work in 2007 whilst studying for my PhD. I undertake research in several areas, with a focus on child welfare and I am currently working on several projects which focus on social media in social work practice. I coordinate the Making Research Count events here at Salford
