Primary research working directly with children and young people
I specialise in designing and carrying out ethical, qualitative research projects with vulnerable groups and children and on sensitive topics.
I can design your research project end to end, carry out field work, including interviews and focus groups finishing with a clear and informative report based on thematic analysis.
I conduct thorough and informative service evaluations including process evaluations and theory of change evaluations. I have a thorough understanding of children’s services delivery in the voluntary and statutory sectors.
I have conducted several literature reviews, scoping reviews and rapid evidence assessments on topics ranging from girls’ reproductive rights to hunger in the school holidays. Contact me for further info on this essential first step in scoping and designing research and service delivery.
Ethical review and advice
I am the Vice Chair of a research ethics committee and have over eight years’ experience in this and similar roles. I can assist with preparing ethical review applications.
