Dr David Dallimore

Honorary Research Associate


I originally trained and worked as a youth worker and outdoor pursuits instructor but then developed a career as a policy consultant and researcher. Since joining the University I have worked on research projects across health, social care, volunteering and civil society, but my main interest is in the early years, children's play and children’s rights.

In 2019 I was awarded an Academic Fellowship in the National Assembly for Wales where I published a series of reports on Early Childhood Education and Care.

I am a trustee of Early Years Wales, Building Communities Trust and my local children’s playground.
