Sally has been involved with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer communities locally and nationally for nearly 30 years.

Sally was a member of the Resilient Therapy Community of Practice, University of Brighton 2008-10. In 2009 she designed and delivered a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course on resilience to women refugees, "Journeys of Resilience", which formed part of the university's knowledge transfer strategy, as a member of the South Coastal Communities Scheme. SECC is a university partnership with local communities. Sally continues to practice as a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist.

Sally has continued to work with asylum seekers and refugees in community impact and engagement, most recently as PI of the AHRC Cultural Values development award, Cultural Values from the Subaltern Perspective: A Phenomenology of Refugees' Experience. Partnerships on this award included The Refugee Council, the 'think-tank' Demos, Glyndebourne Opera House, Brighton and Hove Council, Brighton Jubilee Library, Refugee Action, Brighton and Hove Buses, Brighton Museum, and others.

As Director of the research centre Sussex Centre for Cultural Studies, Sally organises an annual summer 'outreach' event to include those who are outside of the academy, usually in the form of a workshop or a conference with community partnership interest.
