Making Research Count (MRC) is a network of universities who specialise in research in social work, social care and social policy. This national initiative connects those working in social work and social care with research and evidence-based practice.

The Making Research Count Northern Hub, based at the University of York, can support front line practice across Yorkshire and Humber, the North East and Lincolnshire. It offers;

◾ Topical, thought provoking events that bring together practitioner knowledge and expertise with the latest research findings

◾ Support for delegates to implement best practice from research in their work

◾ Opportunities for agencies to develop their skills in evaluating existing policy and practice

◾ A mechanism for practitioners and service users to get involved in setting the agenda for research.
