CoProduce Project Manager

Prof. Alan Walker
Professor of Social Policy and Social Gerontology
I have a career-long commitment to co-production and engagement with a wide range of research end users. My recent experience relates particularly to engaging policy makers and older people in the research process.
Prof. Tony Ryan
Professor of Older People, Care and the Family
My work in the field of older people and family care spans 20 years having worked on a number of large scale research studies and service development projects in the field of dementia, stroke and palliative and supportive care.
Dr Lorna Warren
Senior Lecturer in Social Policy
Key themes running through my work include social and cultural dimensions of ageing, intergenerational relations and informal or family care relationships, and the intersection of age with other critical differences including gender and sexuality. I use a range of qualitative methods: structured and semi-structured interviews, life stories, focus groups, and creative visual arts-based approaches.
Dr Sarah Alden
I specialise in supporting policy and practice related research which adopts co-production and participatory approaches, with a focus on social care, digital and health inclusion. I am currently working with the Healthy Lifespan Institute to help develop a range of co-production resources.
Prof. Beth Perry
Director of Urban Institute
I am currently Director of the Urban Institute and a Professor of Urban Knowledge Governance. I also lead the Urban Institute’s Co-producing Urbanisms theme. I was the UK lead for the Mistra Urban Futures centre, setting up and delivering a local interaction platform across Greater Manchester and Sheffield to develop co-production projects around critical urban justice questions.
