Dr Jess Roy

Lecturer in child and family welfare, University of Bristol, United Kingdom



I am a qualified and registered social worker and have worked with children and families in various settings since 2006. My experience as a care worker, and later as a social worker, prompted my interest in research - specifically about how social workers identify, assess and support children who experience harm relating to parental substance misuse and domestic violence and abuse. I am now a lecturer at University of Bristol, where I am programme director of the Childhood Studies degree course.
