The Centre for Applied Social Research is a wide ranging interdisciplinary grouping which aims to understand the social policy issues surrounding social care, health, criminal justice practices, the processes of caring and the nature and impact of social interventions.
We do this through undertaking innovative theoretical and empirical research, informing social interventions and care practices. A blog for the research centre has recently been launched.
The centre has strong links with other research centres within the school, including the International Centre for Public and Social Policy, with the school's Centre for Social Work, and The Ann Craft Trust.
