I am committed to working towards greater social justice, inclusion and a sustainable future. I am active in a number of community and voluntary sector organisations, and have a particular interest in the complexity of flourishing communities. My work with Steady State Manchester follows a career as an academic, latterly managing a large interdisciplinary research institute. I have published widely about action research with different kinds of communities, urban regeneration, disability, poverty and forced labour. I am currently continuing work on university-community engagement and am interested in embedding feminist thought and practice into debates about sustainable futures, understanding community wellbeing and the implementation of a universal basic income. I am Emerita Professor at Manchester Metropolitan University and Visiting Professor at Edge Hill University’s Institute for Public Policy and Professional Practice.
