I served as a member of the Advisory Board for the Trussell Trust's State of Hunger flagship research programme 2018-21. Read the latest evidence and calls for action. I have continued as an Advisor on the current programme of research Hunger in the UK

I worked with Barnet Local Authority on perceptions of food security, which contributed to their first, local Joint Needs Assessment of food insecurity.
