Our key objective is to collaborate on research that is embedded in real-world issues, to understand the relationships that sustain people with long-term assistance needs. Traditional models of organising care are challenged by demographic and economic changes so we need to ‘do care differently’ to improve experiences of care and to sustain the wellbeing and vigour of those working in care.
Solutions will need to regard care relations as a part of society rather than as a cost to society. We bring together those with long-term care needs, service providers and researchers, drawing on health care and social science perspectives to develop innovations and evidence for alternative solutions.
