Care@Hull - A Dynamic Partnership
The aim of our research is to help people with long term care
needs, their staff and their supporters, to find creative solutions
and new approaches to care and support. Care@Hull
represents a dynamic partnership between researchers, disabled
people and their families, carers, practitioners, service
providers, students, musicians, artists and social entrepreneurs.

Care@Hull - Research Activities
- Applied research - this is about helping
people to use existing knowledge and information to improve their
lives or to do their job more effectively.
- Evaluation - this is about helping
organisations and individuals to measure the effectiveness of the
services that are being delivered to disabled people and
- Sharing knowledge, experience and skills -
this is about enabling people to share what they have learned and
experienced, with others in a similar situation. The Centre aims to
provide links to other information resources.
- Consultancy - this is about offering
professional services and specialist skills to organisations and
groups wishing to improve or reflect upon the services and support
In all aspects of our work we seek the support, wisdom and
guidance of a range of individuals and groups with a direct
interest in long term care and support. In particular, we have
established an active Advice Group, which enjoys representation
from individuals, independent agencies and public bodies. This
Advice Group helps in a number of ways:
- By helping us to think about what matters most and what we
should focus our attention and resources upon.
- By undertaking research with us - working with us to identify
the research questions and then working in partnership to address
- By helping us to think about how we should set about our work -
our guiding values and principles.
