Alongside lecturing in Criminology at Bournemouth University, Jade Levell is currently carrying out The Road Home Study, which is doctoral research on the narratives of men who experienced domestic violence in childhood and became involved with gangs/on road. Jade is a member of the British Society of Criminology.
Prior to her research career Jade worked for ten years in charities that work to end gender based violence. This included several years working in policy and training for Tier 2 domestic violence charity (Standing Together Against Domestic Violence). In this role Jade coordinated projects related to children, health and domestic violence, as well as designed and delivered multi-agency training across West London.
Notable achievements include working as part of an expert panel developing guidance on domestic violence for the Department of Health. Jade also carried out work for the United Nations Population Fund on sharing the findings of the ground-breaking health based domestic violence and abuse intervention project she coordinated... Jade has also worked in a range of front-line support services, including several years working with women involved in prostitution, both in a harm minimisation service and a court diversion scheme. In addition she has worked in a domestic violence refuge and in a rape crisis service. This diverse range of grassroots advocacy and activism work informs her research practice. In recognition of this work Jade was nominated for a national Women’s Aid ‘Empowering Women Award’ (2013).
