Care, Health and Emotional Wellbeing Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

Emotion badges to illustrate mental health and emotional wellbeing Research and Enterprise group

Lead: Dr Lizzie Ward

Research in this group combines applied ‘real world’ empirical research with a range of theoretical and conceptual models of care, emotional health and wellbeing, using insights from community psychology, medical sociology, social policy and social work, counselling and psychotherapy to influence policy and practice.

The researchers have a common approach in developing critical perspectives and focuses on the lived experiences of those who use services and/or are the subjects of social policy. Members have strong policy and practice links with community and statutory organisations through commissioned work and collaborative initiatives.

We work closely with practitioners, service providers, decision makers and members of the public to develop participative approaches to co-producing knowledge. This means, for example, working alongside ‘lay co-researchers’ to carry out research and developing knowledge exchange mechanisms for share learning and enhance practice.
