Taking part in research

Why take part in social research?

Social research helps us to understand

Social research helps us to understand what people think, what views they have and what experiences they have had on a whole range of issues that affect how we live, work and study.

Social research makes a difference

The findings of research we carry out at The Social Research Centre help government and others to understand how things are working, what people’s needs are and what the priorities should be in areas such as health, housing, well-being, employment and education.  It helps to ensure that the organisations who make decisions on things that affect our society do so on the basis of evidence.

A little of your time will make a big difference overall

We know your time is precious, but our work really does make a difference.
