Welcome to the School of Social Policy, where our mission isto understand the world – but also to change it. This means carrying out high quality and relevant research, but then using this as a starting point for making a practical difference in the real world through our teaching, our professional training, our policy advice and our work with local communities, the public and the media. In fulfilling this mission, our aim is to be recognised as one of the top five units of our kind in the country by 2020.
