About us

We focus on social issues affecting the region and beyond and engage in research and practice-based collaborations that aim to improve living conditions, address inequalities and social exclusion and promote social justice and social policy.

REF 2014 judged almost half of our outputs as world-leading/internationally excellent and a third of our research activities as world-leading/internationally excellent.


Currently, our work falls into the following three clusters:

Children, Young People and Families

Communities, Health and Social Exclusion

Crime Victims and Social Justice
