Since becoming Co-Director of CCP she has worked with many stakeholders to co-write immersive simulations which tackle complex child protection issues including sexual abuse (‘Rosie 1’); neglect (‘Rosie 2’); radicalization and extremism (‘Zak’; ‘Behind Closed Doors’); paedophilia (‘Elliot’); child sexual exploitation (‘Looking out for Lottie’); and ‘Rosie goes to court’. The simulations are widely used across the UK and internationally by professionals and young people.
