Words public health written across two palms to illustrate Public Health and Wellbeing REG image

Research into care, health and wellbeing examines interactions between lived experience, policy and practice. We adopt a critical perspective on policy, service delivery and the practices of workers within statutory and voluntary sector agencies. We have a particular interest in collective action amongst service users and the contribution of experiential knowledge and lay perspectives to research and public governance.

We seek to understand the social policy issues surrounding the processes of caring, the nature and impact of interventions and the context of wellbeing. We collaborate with users, providers and academics to ensure that our research informs current social care practice.
