Biography

Tim Moore has been part of the ICPS team since 2005. During this time, Tim has worked with peers to explore the ways that children and young people understand and experience their worlds, their relationships and the challenges that they and families encounter. Drawing from experience as a youth worker, Tim has conducted studies on young caring, homelessness, parental drug and alcohol issues, youth justice and child protection – particularly focusing on how to best respond to children and young people facing adversity. He is interested in child and youth-centred practice both in the research and service-delivery arenas and has spent time developing methods and approaches to promote children and young people’s inclusion and to act on their opinions and wishes. He believes that until adults, organisations and systems understand what it is like to be a child, and what they want and need, theory and practice will be ineffective.
