Profile Summary

Following the completion of a Psychology BA I worked as an assistant psychologist, support young people diagnosed with Autism, learning disabilities who displayed behaviours that challenge to manage their behaviour, to improve quality of life. 

After returning to education to complete my Social Work MA at Salford, I spent 5 years with a local authority as a social worker, initially on the adult duty team, before moving to support the creation of an extended hours hospital discharge team.  This work included intermediate care settings, which sparked my interest in the multi-disciplinary environment and lead to my PhD proposal. 

My PhD research project explores the under-representation of Pakistani and Bangladeshi older women using intermediate care.  Using narrative interviews and dialogical narrative analysis I aim to propose a framework for inclusion to enable these women fair access to services.

Other interests include;

Social work with adults encompassing; social care and health integration, intermediate and preventative care, individuals with no spoken English.

Poverty, covering foodbanks and food poverty/insecurity, political & social influences on class

Qualitative research methods

Legislative reform – including the introduction of The Care Act (2014) and The Mental Capacity Act (2005)
