Health and Care Research Wales- Supporting Social Care research Survey


The new Social Care Research Strategy sets out a vision ‘For Wales to be internationally renowned for its excellent social care research that supports the people of Wales by informing and improving social care policy and practice.’  In order to achieve this people who use services, people who provide services and the public in general need to be more aware of research evidence and how it can be applied to their lives. The Strategy will be launched in the next few months and the implementation will support activities that will achieve this vision.


Health and Care Research Wales have a training programme that supports research in Wales. However, there is a need for an increase in training that has a social care research focus. We want to make sure that the training meets the requirements of people involved in research. We have developed a survey for people interested in social care research to help us understand what the training programme should include.

The links below will take you to the survey. The closing date for the survey is 1st January 2018.
