I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant and PhD candidate. My thesis is focused on youth offending practitioner experiences of delivering restorative early intervention programmes. The research aims to address where practitioners draw their knowledge from, and how knowledge is adapted through processes of philosophy, theory, policy and practice.
