Clare Clancy

Research Assistant

Clare’s role is to support the running of research projects for the What Works for Children’s Social Care.

Prior to working for WWCSC, Clare had a variety of roles within the NHS, in both hospital and community settings. Clare’s interests centre around improving the well-being of children, their families and staff working within front-line services. She has completed a BA in Sociology and an MSc in Experimental Psychology, where she developed an interest in health research and evidence-based practice. Within her most recent role, she supported the development of a new well-being service in schools, increasing access to psychological therapies. As part of an Early Intervention team delivering 1:1 therapy, Clare has supported young people and their families to improve mental health outcomes.

Clare loves running, paddle-boarding in Brighton, visiting galleries and watching Louis Theroux documentaries.
