Helping you to thrive and succeed in your chosen profession 

Valerie Gant

Dr Valerie Gant is an experienced social work practitioner and senior lecturer at the University of Chester. Val has written and published on a variety of subjects relating to health and social care.

Her personal experience of having a child with severe learning disabilities has both inspired and informed her in-depth professional knowledge of this area.  

An active researcher, Val is interested in carers, disability issues and auto-ethnography, both as a process and a method, and has recently published a paper on this method in QSW.

She lives by the sea, and when she isn't writing and researching she enjoys walking her dog and spending time with her family.
