Speaker Biography

Stuart Gallagher

Stuart Gallagher’s primary research interest is to understand how educational interventions can be developed to support child welfare professionals, especially those working in professional tiers of intervention beneath statutory social care thresholds, to protect children from non-accidental maltreatment in private homes.

This research includes evaluations of learning models in serious case reviews. Currently, Stuart is a lecturer in the Centre for Early Childhood at the University of Worcester. He has worked in the voluntary/charitable sector as a home tutor to school-excluded children with statements of special educational needs as well as a co-ordinator of an inner-city basic skills drop-in for children self-excluding from school.

He has also worked in a number of local authorities as an education welfare officer. Stuart is keen to encourage child welfare practitioners in the voluntary and public sectors to engage with Early Years child development practice to develop a better understanding of interventions that actively protect infants and very young children from non-accidental maltreatment in their private homes.
