Full Profile

Having joined the School of Social Work in January 2015, Emily is currently involved in a 4-year ESRC funded project, which looks at building the evidence base on early intervention responses for children living with domestic abuse. Prior to this, Emily undertook a Ph.D. at Lancaster University, which explored the journeys experienced by looked after children in one Local Authority, and the availability and utility of routinely collected administrative data for this purpose. Of key interest in this research is the subsequent legal action following entry of children to the looked after system via voluntary accommodation (under S.20 of the Children Act 1989).

Emily is also involved in project work regarding mothers who have experienced recurrent care proceedings, as well as an evaluation of domestic abuse services in a North West area. Emily’s main research interests include looked after children and child protection, with specific interests in the socio-legal aspects, and the link with domestic abuse.
