What are Networks?
Each Network is made up of eight to ten people in each of the four nations, who meet to discuss a common yet complex challenge using a set of pre-prepared materials. They meet regularly over a period of six months, feeding back to the Networks Lead each time.
Members will share their experiences and learnings and suggest practical and scale-able ideas for an action plan.
People with learning disabilities / autistic people leaving long-stay hospitals
Relationships between care homes and their residents / local communities

I’m a Research Fellow at the Centre for International Research on Care, Labour and Equalities (CIRCLE), University of Sheffield. My research has focused on technology and its role in care systems in the UK and further afield. I am passionate about supporting change in adult social care and learning from those with practice and lived experience.
I worked in the anti-slavery/anti-trafficking sector for almost ten years in various roles from direct casework to safe house manager. My background includes trauma informed training delivery; engagement in advocacy for policy change in the sector; facilitating multi-agency working and engagement with survivors with lived experience. I strongly believe in the saying “nothing about us, without us” when it comes to working to improve the lives of people.
