Katharine is a postgraduate research student at King’s College London and a Dunhill Medical Trust Research Training Fellow (RTF59/0114) (2014-2017). Her supervisors are Prof. Jill Manthorpe, Director of the Social Care Workforce Research Unit, King’s College London, and Prof. Anthea Tinker, Institute of Gerontology, King’s College London.

Her research aims to improve the understanding of day centres for older people by setting out to paint, from multiple perspectives, a rich picture of how day centres are perceived, what they offer, who uses them, how and what they contribute to the lives of those involved in them, and how they relate to healthcare services. She will be using mixed methods within a multiple case study approach.
