We aim to be recognised internationally as a leading centre of excellence for research and knowledge exchange in the disciplines of social work and social policy. We're contributing to academic debates through the publication of internationally-recognised research outputs and help to shape the future direction of research in the two disciplines.
Our work is organised under the four broad headings of:
- Children, young people & families
- Health & wellbeing
- Citizenship & communities
- Criminal & social justice
These research areas are aligned closely with the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences’ research themes of Health, Children and Young People, and Public and Social Policy, and the University research themes of Health and Wellbeing, and Society and Policy.
