CIRCLE’s flagship programme 2017- 2021
Sustainable Care: Connecting people and systems
This programme was a major research programme in CIRCLE, undertaken with an ESRC award for the period 2017 to 2021.
CIRCLE is led by Director Professor Sue Yeandle, and comprises a team of researchers working collaboratively across disciplines relevant to care and caring and to paid and unpaid work in diverse contexts. We conduct studies which aim to explore issues of equality, diversity, difference and fairness.
Our multidisciplinary team includes professors, lecturers, researchers, PhD students and collaborators, plus CIRCLE’s dedicated research manager and administrator.
