Alex has worked with us to develop the programme of work in a co-creative approach. Alex has shown great skill in contributing to this team approach, and in particular he brings a sound grasp of theoretical underpinning to the work. He is also bringing a rigour and academic perspective which is helping others…who have less experience of the research world.
