Research centre for children, families and communities

ENHANCING LIVES AND LIFE CHANCES

The aim of this dynamic Research Centre is to undertake research that enhances the lives and life chances of children and young people while building strong families and communities.

The Research Centre brings a highly multi-disciplinary perspective to our research and scholarship, which was judged in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework to be of an 'internationally excellent' standard (REF 2014). This is evident in our project work, publications, seminars and conferences; our doctoral supervision and teaching; and our leadership and collaboration with academic and professional partners.
