Nadia Bashir BA (Hons), MA

Research Fellow


Summary

Nadia has substantial experience in qualitative research and co-production in research and evaluation. She has formed learning partnerships with clients and their services users / beneficiaries to enable capacity building in research and evaluation that better meet organisational and individual needs. Her expertise in various qualitative research methods facilitates the engagement of research participants from vulnerable and seldom heard groups, including young people with multiple and complex needs, isolated older people, and people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. Reflexivity, methodological issues and ethics in research are of particular interest to Nadia, informing her approach to each project that she leads.

About

Nadia is currently leading an evaluation to assess the impact of the Humber Learning Consortium’s This-Ability programme on beneficiaries. The programme is aimed at finding young people with a disability, learning disability/difficulty or a long-term health/mental health condition sustainable employment. The evaluation involves people with lived experience of these conditions to co-deliver the evaluation in partnership with experienced researchers from CRESR.

Prior to this, she led a learning partnership involving CRESR, BAC-IN CIC, and the Lankelly Chase Foundation, exploring culturally specific responses to drug and alcohol recovery and multiple disadvantage. She has previously undertaken research in projects for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), the National Health Service (NHS), the Big Lottery Fund, and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

Research interests/PhD supervision

  • Co-production in research and evaluation
  • Exploring different methodological approaches to engaging those groups that are seldom heard
  • Researching the lived experiences of those seldom heard, in particular, BAME experiences of multiple disadvantage in various aspects of their lives

If you are interested in undertaking a PhD in these areas, please get in touch with Nadia and she will be happy to discuss any ideas you have.
