Boys to Men
The From Boys to Men Project was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to explore why some boys become domestic abuse perpetrators when others do not. The aim of the research was to establish what more can be done to reduce the number of young men who become perpetrators.
ECPR Summer School
This project seeks to move away from an assessment of the problems associated with ageing in urban communities towards a new focus on the role of community action in contributing to a more active form of ageing in disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
The Longitudinal study of Ageing in a Retirement Community (LARC), funded by Anchor Trust, ran from June 2006 to July 2010. The study explored the development and implications of a new purpose-built retirement community at Denham Garden Village, Buckinghamshire.
Providing effective and appropriate care to people facing significant life-changing events such as bereavement demands that the individual way in which each person experiences and deals with loss, needs to be recognised and understood.
