    Social work & social policy

    Our research helps shape social work policy and practice through partnerships with national and international agencies.

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
  • Social & criminal justice
