I set up the Sexual Offences, Crime and Misconduct Research Unit in 2007 to build upon the collaborative relationship between ongoing research within the Psychology Division at NTU and HMP Whatton (the largest sex offender prison in Europe, holding approximately 830 convicted male sex offenders). The unit's primary aim is to conduct and facilitate applied forensic research in the area of sex offending and sexual crime, with the research unit sitting at the juxtaposition between the world of prison and that of academia.

Current research programmes include mixed method evaluations of anti-libidinal medication, pre treatment initiatives, prison and community based Circles of Support and Accountability. Also conducting research exploring religiosity and sexual offenders, peer support programmes, the collecting of sexually explicit materials, personality disorders in sex offenders, challenges for/with transgender prisoners, offenders who target elderly victims, as well as work with non-offending paedophiles and ex-prisoners who are seeking treatment and support to stay offence-free.

The Safer Living Foundation
I am co-founder and trustee of the Safer Living Foundation, a charity set up in 2014 to conduct (and evaluate) initiatives that help to prevent further victims of sexual crime. We are now running prison and community based CoSA and have also started Young People's CoSA. Additionally we are seeking funding to run a regional prevention project in which free treatment and support is offered to individuals concerned they may offend. Please contact me if you are interested.

Further projects include researching child sexual exploitation, and helping institutionalised offenders in the transition from prison to community. Additionally the charity has the goal of setting up accommodation for sex offenders released from custody who would benefit from a 'three quarters' way house.
