An inter-disciplinary research project led by Professor Sue Read (School of Nursing & Midwifery), Dr Sotirios Santatzoglou (School of Law) and Dr Anthony Wrigley, (School of Law) has secured a £20,000 grant from the Barrow-Cadbury Trust to collaborate on a qualitative research project, which aims to develop a loss and bereavement assessment tool to support young adults across the criminal justice system.  Dr Mary Corcoran, (School of Social Science and Public Policy), and Dr Kate Lillie, (School of Nursing & Midwifery) are also collaborators in the inter-disciplinary project.

The research team will work with a range of professionals across the criminal justice system; community rehabilitation companies; ASIST, Staffordshire; ex-offenders with experiences of loss; and bereavement counsellors, to ensure that such a tool will be ‘fit for purpose’.
