This Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarship (KESS) project will be held in the Centre for Criminology in the Faculty of Business and Society at the University of South Wales. KESS is a programme funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) awarded by the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) in the Welsh Government. The PhD will be associated with Youth Justice Board (YJB) Cymru, National Youth Advocacy Service (NYAS) and other strategic partners. The project will focus on whether children’s rights are being protected and children’s voices are heard when they are dealt with through the informal route. Hence, this will project will full this knowledge gap in order to improve the services and processes for dealing with children. The Welsh Government Youth Justice Blueprint for Wales aims to further develop diversionary practices and a more co-ordinated approach to establish consistent rights-based practice across Wales. This project will support the partner agency YJB Cymru (and other stakeholders) to move the Welsh Government Blueprint forward in these areas.
The project is backed by YJB Cymru, which is a non-departmental public body responsible for overseeing the youth justice system in Wales.

Military Service, Philanthropy and Security in Modern Britain: The History of the Corps of Commissionaires
Stage one closing: December 4, 2019
This project will investigate the history of the Corps of Commissionaires – a British voluntary association that provided employment for former military service personnel from the mid-nineteenth century. This project involves working with the rich, private archive of the Corps to explore new perspectives on major developments in the social, cultural and military history of modern Britain, from the mid-nineteenth to the late-twentieth century. It will also enhance access to the organisation’s history and support Corps Security – the descendent of the Commissionaires – to develop new public and business engagement initiatives designed to promote understanding of its unique heritage.
The project is supported by an expert supervisory team. The academic supervisors – Dr David Churchill (School of Law) and Dr Jessica Meyer (School of History) – are social historians with expertise in private security and military welfare respectively. They have conducted extensive historical research on policing, the security industry, military servicemen, medical provision and care for demobilised soldiers. Accordingly, they are ideally placed to provide guidance and support in this project. The supervisor at Corps Security, Diz Sollesse, is Custodian of the Corps archive, and therefore able to offer specialist expertise on the collection, and to support dissemination and engagement initiatives with the company and other organisations.
