Making Research Count events

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak we have temporarily suspended our events programme.  We are reviewing the situation regularly and hope to reschedule all events as soon as it is safe to do so.

Making Research Count promotes communication and knowledge sharing between academics and researchers and social work and social  care practitioners to enable front line staff to benefit from the latest research and development. This is done through an ongoing programme of events, which is designed in partnership with the Continuing Professional Development teams of local authorities and other partners, as well as feedback from delegates at events. 

The latest events are shown below.

We offer cost-effective membership subscriptions, pay as you go options and voluntary sector bursaries to ensure the events are accessible to all who can benefit from participation.
