Profile Information

Heart shape painted onto children's grouped handsWorking directly through our social enterprise and network, which is known as 'Boingboing', the Centre of Resilience for Social Justice tackles disadvantage and brings genuine change to people's lives around the world.

Our researchers cross the fields of healthcare, sociology, media studies and arts practices. The team includes academics, social workers, teachers, experts through experience and service users. Some of us have multiple identities. Together we address health, social and ecological inequalities in the UK, Europe and Africa.

Research and enterprise feed off each other through our committed co-production model. This ensures genuine impact and an academic rigour that can offer real-world solutions to a range of different communities and their individual challenges. The set of extended networks we have fostered work across disciplinary and linguistic boundaries, bringing us closer to all kinds of practitioners, community groups and individual partners.
