Dr Jane Cullingworth

  • Research Associate (Urban Studies)

Biography

I completed a PhD at the University of Glasgow in June 2020.  My thesis, titled Democratic governance through intermediary bodies: a case study of third sector interfaces in Scotland, examined the relationship between third sector and state, exploring the impact of participation in governance networks on a third sector interface’s independence from the state and representation of the sector.  My interest in this area is rooted in over 30 years as a third sector practitioner.

I am currently a Research Associate with Children's Neighbourhoods Scotland. Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland takes a place-based approach to improving outcomes for children, young people and their communities. ‘Children’s neighbourhoods’ bring together people, resources and organisations in a local area, so that all of those things can work collaboratively towards better lives for the children living there.

Prior to joining CNS, I worked on two projects:

  • Disabled people and COVID-19 in the UK explored the experiences of disabled people and COVID19 (University of Glasgow and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine)
  • The Collaborative was a University of Glasgow initiative to build the university’s relationship with the local third sector

I am the co-chair of the Voluntary Sector Studies Network, a network that brings together academics and practitioners interested in third sector research.
