Sarah Parker

Professional Title: PhD Researcher
Institution: Trinity College Dublin
Position: Associate Member


Sarah is a PhD candidate in the School of Social Work and Social Policy, Trinity College Dublin (TCD). Previously, Sarah worked for several years as a researcher at the Children’s Research Centre (TCD) and has co-authored a number of publications arising from a range of commissioned research projects including a biographical study of homeless women, a qualitative longitudinal study of homeless youth and a survey-based project that ‘mapped’ homeless services for women in the Dublin Region.

Her most recent publication was a book she co-authored with Dr Paula Mayock, entitled ‘Living in Limbo – Homeless Young People’s Paths to Housing’ which was launched in May 2017. Her current research is a mixed methods study that was supported by a Government of Ireland Scholarship awarded by the Irish Research Council. A core goal of the project is to advance understanding of the temporal dynamics of family homelessness and help bridge the gap between research and practice in homelessness prevention, policy planning and service delivery for families experiencing housing exclusion.
