Dr Rosie Campbell OBE is a Research Fellow with SSI working with the Institute Director, SSI steering group and members of SSI from all schools, to develop the work of SSI.  Rosie has moved between academic roles (primarily research focused) and frontline support service provision predominantly in the third sector. She has worked around community safety issues since 1995, having worked with community safety partnerships in various areas of the UK via her research, service provision and policy work, particularly in relation to sex work and child sexual exploitation. She has held research roles on national research projects at Liverpool Hope, Leeds, Loughborough and Leicester Universities.  When employed as Coordinator of Armistead Street and Portside sex work support projects, NHS outreach and health promotion services, she worked with Merseyside Police to introduce the approach of including sex workers in hate crime policy, the first area in the UK to do so. An approach she explored in her PhD at Durham University,  and carried on exploring at a policy level in her ESRC White Rose postdoctoral Fellowship at York.  Her PhD study informs the book ‘Sex work and hate crime’, published by Palgrave in 2021, co authored with Professor Teela Sanders. She also co authored the book ‘Sex Work Now’ (2006) with Professor Maggie O’Neill.

Rosie was a founder member and Chair of the UK Network of Sex Work Projects,  which  became National Ugly Mugs a safety and support charity for sex workers in the UK. Rosie was a third sector expert on the Dept of Health, National Support Team for Sexual Violence. In 2011 she was awarded an OBE for her work with vulnerable women.

Her research interests are in sex work, hate crime, women’s safety, violence against women and girls, stalking, participatory action research and sexual violence.  She is currently the Principal investigator on the Project 'Ten years on; stalking in Kirklees policing and support for survivors', funded by the ESRC.
