Hello, I’m Lucie. I’m the Director of The Youthscape Centre for Research here at Youthscape.
I came to Youthscape from the University of Bedfordshire and I’ve always done research with or about young people. I love being an academic in a sea of youth workers, and am slowly acclimating to the high quality of office banter. I want our research to genuinely enrich young people’s lives, and love it when we learn something which changes the way we see or act. When I’m not working I’m parenting, leading in my local church, being a trustee and trying to hang out with as many inspiring local people as possible. I’m also tall which is great, apart from when you’re sitting in front of Stanley Tucci at a wedding (that happened). Finally I’m passionate about crisps. I really like crisps.
I'm Phoebe and I'm the Head of Theology on our Research team.
I moved to Youthscape to set up the Centre for Research and led the team co-publishing our first major report 'Losing Heart' in 2016. My interest in academic study and research then took me on a journey to complete a Doctorate (at King’s College London) exploring the way youth work transforms the lives of young people. At the same time I keep myself rooted in the realities of youth work by helping run the youth group at our local church in London. I love the commitment Youthscape has to research and interrogating ideas in order to achieve the best for young people. It's a passion I share.
Hi, I’m Gry and I work in Youthscape’s Centre for Research – I joined the team in May 2019.
I have a BSc in Psychology, an MSc in (basically) Mind Control, and the dream is to become a Clinical Psychologist. I am passionate about faith, young people, mental health and trauma and I think it is so important that our practice as youth workers is founded on what young people actually need, rather than what we think they need – which is why research is so important. I also love skiing, laughing, and deep conversations with friends. The most famous people I’ve met? Well, rural Norway was a quiet place to grow up, so…it would have to be Katy Perry's old youth workers. Admittedly, niche.
