Marie Jameson

Social worker


I am a child protection social worker practicing in the North West of England and a part-time PhD student based at Manchester Metropolitan University. I am part of Manchester Metropolitan’s Substance Use and Associated Behaviours research group. My research interests focus on the impact of parental substance misuse of children and families, particularly upon informal kinship carers (members of a child’s wider family and friend network who take on care of the children when they cannot safely remain in the parental home) and their families, as they receive significantly less statutory support than foster carers.
