I bring to the Social Care Degree a wealth of experience having worked in the voluntary social care sector for 15 years particularly in the fields of Older People and Carers.
I came into post in August 2013 and since then has been successful in engaging many new placement providers. I am now working in close collaboration with these providers to create the best of placement experiences for both the student and the organisation. This has led to the potential development of a partnership between the University and a number of Social Care organisations across Greater Manchester through which collaborative projects will be developed.
I began my PhD studies in Social Policy in January 2013. My project will examine the changing nature of Volunteering in contemporary Britain.
