The NIHR School for Social Care Research has a remit to commission and undertake research to add to the evidence base and help improve adult social care practice in England.  We were established in 2009 and include 5 universities across England, namely, the London School of Economics and Political Science (the host organisation), and the Universities of Bristol, Kent (covering the PSSRU and the Tizard research centres), Manchester, and York.  We also commission research from other universities and research active organisations.

Public involvement in research

We have a very active Users’, Carers’ & Practitioners’ Reference Group who help to steer the School (including providing representation on our Advisory Board) and participate in School activities (e.g. reviewing research proposals and reports, and contributing to seminars and other events).  We require an appropriate approach to user, carer and practitioner involvement in all projects we commission.
