Evidence In Social Welfare Policy And Practice

Come and celebrate the launch of Social Welfare at the British Library, a new free online service offering a single point of access to the vast print and digital collections on social welfare and social policy.

The acquisition of a very significant charitable foundation archive will also be announced: a major primary research resource for scholars exploring voluntary-sector activity.

This conference will explore issues such as the use of evidence in health policy; the gathering and dissemination of evidence about the voluntary and community sector; practitioner access to evidence; and the potential of charity archives for research.

Speakers include:

- Prof. Jon Glasby, Director, Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham (the keynote speaker);
- Prof. Pete Alcock, Director, Third Sector Research Centre, University of Birmingham;
- Dr Jo Moriarty, Social Care Workforce Research Unit, King’s College London
- Dr Georgina Brewis, Research Officer, Institute of Education, University of London, and founder, Campaign for Charity Archives;
- Dr Diana Leat, independent commentator and researcher on the voluntary sector.

The conference will conclude with a panel discussion, followed by a drinks reception with music by the Winter Quartet.

Although this event is free, booking is essential.
