Working directly through our social enterprise and network, which is known as Boingboing, the Centre of Resilience for Social Justice tackles disadvantage and brings genuine change to people’s lives around the world.

Our researchers cross the fields of healthcare, sociology, media studies and arts practices. The team includes academics, social workers, teachers, experts through experience and service users.  Together we address health, social and ecological inequalities in the UK, Europe and Africa.

Research and enterprise feed off each other through our committed co-production model. This ensures genuine impact and an academic rigour that can offer real-world solutions to a range of different communities and their individual challenges. The set of extended networks we have fostered work across disciplinary and linguistic boundaries, bringing us closer to all kinds of practitioners, community groups and individual partners.

Karen was truly brilliant at honing in on the issues that matter and also taking personal aspirations and developments into consideration. She gave me some really crucial things to take forward in my planning.
