Dr Jenny Lloyd
Assistant Professor (Research)
|Assistant Professor (Research) in the Department of Sociology|
I am a social and cultural geographer working in the area of extra-familial harm in adolescence. As a member of the Contextual Safeguarding team I work across two projects. I manage the National Scale-Up of Contextual Safeguarding approaches in five child and family social care departments across England and Wales. Utilising embedded research methodologies, I work with practitioners to develop new approaches to addressing extra-familial harm including child sexual exploitation, child criminal exploitation, harmful sexual behaviour and youth violence. Secondly, I work on the ESRC funded Innovate Project exploring how services are addressing extra-familial risks experienced by young people outside of the family home, building new knowledge about the processes of innovation in social care.
Prior to joining Durham I worked in the Safer Young Lives Research Centre at the University of Bedfordshire. In this role I managed the education strand of Contextual Safeguarding on the Beyond Referrals project working with schools to identify enablers and barriers to addressing harmful sexual behaviour in schools. Prior to joining the SYLRC I worked within the voluntary sector to advocate on issues of human trafficking, labour rights and exploitation. In 2015 I completed my PhD in Human Geography at Newcastle University where my research focused on the experiences of migrant women in Singapore.
I have a particular interest in understanding the relationship between space and place to young people’s experiences of harm. Additionally in utilising embedded and action-orientated approaches to research I am passionate about the importance of applied research approaches, working with practitioners to develop new approaches to addressing systemic and structural harm and facilitate systems change. My recent research has explored the role of embedded research and the relationships of trust and surveillance in children’s social care. I am a Consultant for the Council of International Schools and a Member of the International taskforce for Child Protection.
