In the ESRC Vulnerability & Policing Futures Research Centre, Kate will be working on our ‘place-based’ research. This work will bring communities together with practitioners, policymakers and researchers to create deep and shared understanding of the inhibitors, facilitators and opportunities for inter-organisational service provision in policing vulnerabilities. This work will initially take place in Bradford and Kate will contribute her knowledge and experience of its diverse socio-economic and demographic composition and related inequalities, rich data (including linked routine data) resources and partnerships.
