Jill Roberts

Senior Researcher, Policy

Jill works in the policy team and her focus over the next two years will be working in partnership with Manchester University to examine how health and social care providers, the public and other key stakeholders have responded to the introduction of ‘Ofsted-style’ performance ratings by the Care Quality Commission, and what impacts ratings have on performance and the quality of care. She has a particular interest in public health and inequalities.

Before joining the Fund in 2015, Jill was a research fellow at University College London’s Institute of Health Equity, and has previously worked at the NSPCC, specialising in child protection policy and research, and as a serious crime intelligence officer and researcher for Greater Manchester Police.

Jill has a degree in English literature and language from the University of Sheffield, and a Masters in research methodology and social policy from the University of Liverpool.
