Health and Wellbeing is a topic of ever-increasing importance, and one of the fastest evolving areas of our business. With that in mind, we are pleased to welcome Siobhan Sadlier to the team as Research and Evaluation Executive
Siobhan joined us earlier this month and her key focus will be to take forward our evaluation work within Health & Wellbeing and related areas, particularly focusing on the Voluntary & Community sector. Beyond this, Siobhan will also be involved in projects mainly as an evaluator.
Siobhan’s interests and experience lie in the mental health, housing, community development, social inequalities and domestic violence fields. She has a wealth of expertise in consulting with seldom heard and vulnerable groups including working at BRAP, a Birmingham-based equality-focused charity, performing outreach in a Red Light District, prisons and hostels.
During her studies, Siobhan undertook community research training with the Institute for Research into Superdiversity where she partnered with a Birmingham Women’s centre to explore the barriers migrant women face in accessing services. Siobhan also completed an undergraduate student placement and delivered a digital inclusion project for service users at the centre. She has worked as a community action worker and case worker at Birmingham Settlement and facilitated workshops for children living in Ashram refuges. Siobhan has also worked as a residential youth worker for a local sixth form college and a student social worker for a local authority.
We are excited about the knowledge, experience and passion that Siobhan will bring to the M·E·L Research team helping us to provide valuable research to our clients.
