I have been part of the CYCJ team since 2014 and currently project manage the multi-agency work completed under the Improving Life Chances Implementation Group. Prior to this I led on the Centre’s reintegration and transitions work. I work closely with the research team, having previously completed research into risk management in mental health; reintegration and transitions practice across Scotland; the impact of imprisonment on families; and young people’s experiences of youth justice policy. I have also worked with colleagues from CELCIS and other organisations in the development of the youth and criminal justice section of the Scottish Care Leavers Covenant.

Prior to this, I spent ten years working with vulnerable and marginalised children and young people across sectors and in various roles. Having completed a Master of Arts in Social Policy in 2006 and Master of Social Work in 2009, I joined a local authority Children and Families Social Work team. I am passionate about ensuring children and young people are given the opportunity and necessary support to achieve their best possible outcomes. From my experience as a practitioner, I understand the pressures faced by, and the importance of, supporting and developing the broad youth justice workforce if this is to be achieved.
