Chris FordChris Ford undertakes research and development work focused around the voluntary and community sectors of the North East of England. His core focus is working with diverse marginalised communities, simulating and supporting personal, organisational and sectoral development. In recent years this has included direct work with people who are homeless, have mental problems, are involved with the criminal justice system, refugees and asylum seekers, and older people with complex health needs; as well as the agencies and systems that work with these individuals and communities.

His work currently has two themes: enabling agencies to integrate reflective learning into organisational, practice and professional development, and the opportunities and consequences of alternative resourcing approaches in promoting social justice.
