Having previously worked with us as a Senior Associate, Becky was appointed to the role of Director in July 2022 to support us in our expansion.
Becky is a subject matter expert in issues relating to victims’ experience of crime and criminal justice, and the response to victims from statutory and specialist services. Her experience in both consultancy and academia will assist us in diversifying further into academic research partnerships, alongside our traditional consultancy offer.
Becky’s previous projects with SuJu include a review of the Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry (Northern Ireland) Redress Scheme and academic research into the needs of those impacted by road death and serious collision, in partnership with Staffordshire University. Becky has a wide range of experience across the victim sector and criminal justice, including senior roles with the Strategic Centre for Serious and Organised Crime at the Home Office, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse and with Victim Support.
In addition to her role with SuJu, Becky is currently undertaking a PhD with the School for Policy Studies at the University of Bristol. Her research is an ethnographic study of victim participation at the International Criminal Court, exploring the way in which victims are constructed within the trial proceedings and the purpose the victim participant role serves to the delivery of justice. This research seeks to develop a new context for victims within criminal justice in an attempt to move away from inclusion on purely moral grounds. Becky also contributes to academic research projects, most notably a recent co-production study to improve the accessibility of dental services for adult survivors of child sexual abuse.
