Sorcha Daly is the Project and Communications Coordinator for the Southern Responses to Displacement Project.
Sorcha is responsible for the day to day management of the project and supports the research team to ensure project findings are widely disseminated, translated and accessible to the communities participating in this research. She will be overseeing the development and implementation of the project’s impact and communications strategy including the project’s digital communications plan.
Before joining the Southern Responses to Displacement project, Sorcha worked at the UCL Institute of Health Equity as a researcher, focusing on the social determinants of health. To date Sorcha has published a number of reports examining the impact of social determinants across the life course on inequalities in life expectancy, healthy life expectancy and other health outcomes. Reports have covered a number of areas including the life course social determinants of poor mental health, cognitive decline and dementia in later life, how the high street impacts on the health of individuals and communities, and how small, non-health voluntary sector organisations address the wider social, economic and environmental determinants of poor health.
Prior to this Sorcha worked for over 10 years in the voluntary sector, in various areas, including migrants and refugees, substance misuse, criminal justice and specialist women’s support services. She holds a BSc in Anthropology from University College London.
