Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC)
Nicola Brimblecombe is a second year PhD student in CPEC and in CASE and an Assistant Professorial Research Fellow in the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC) at LSE, where she has been working since 2012. Her PhD research explores the consequences for unpaid carers of unmet need for social care services for disabled or older people in England. Her research at CPEC has focused on unpaid carers (working-age, children, and young adults), support for carers and the people they support, young people’s mental health services, and long-term economic impacts of childhood emotional and behavioural problems and of childhood bullying victimisation. Prior to LSE, Nic worked as a researcher in both the voluntary and academic sectors, carrying out research on the reasons behind the increase in health inequalities in Britain in the 1980s and early 1990s, and studies with pregnant women living in vulnerable situations.
