The BU Research Centre for Seldom Heard Voices brings together academics from across different disciplines including social sciences and social work to engage with marginalised communities and to amplify often excluded or silenced voices.
We have a strong track record of developing collaborative partnerships with communities and key stakeholders and for using participatory and co-created approaches. Our aim is to apply our research to real-world challenges to maximise societal impact.
Our research includes collaborations with looked after children, youth in the developing world or conflict areas, rough sleepers, substance users, transgender youth and LGBT+ communities, stigmatised and threatened minorities, immigrants and trafficking victims, disabled children and adults, older people, carers, and many more. Impact includes contributions to child and adult social care practice, influencing policy, theoretical contributions to conflict resolution and community engagement and empowerment in the UK and globally including Kosovo, Albania, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Nepal and Rwanda.

Disabled people’s voices on sexual well-being
This film is about disabled people’s voices on sexual well-being. Disabled people have equal rights to positive sexual well-being including sexual citizenship; however, this may not always be experienced and support for sexual well-being is less likely to form part of services offered by professionals in health and social care services. There is a clear link between sexual well-being and other aspects of physical and emotional well-being, making it an issue which needs to be proactively addressed by health and social care professionals in ways which are directed by disabled people.
Chief Cook & Bottle Washer
This is a film created by the BU PIER partnership and 11 male carers over the age of 85. Carers share their insights on being an older carer; how life has changed and their key messages for practitioners.
A real life account of a father's experiences of parental substance use. The 15 minute story documents Johnny's reflections on how his drug use developed; incidents of relapse and recovery; the impact of his substance use on his parenting and his involvement with children's social care. Johnny's story was created as part of the Parents' Story Project, a research collaboration between BU and Bournemouth Drug and Alcohol Action Team.
Simulated child protection conference
This film covers a simulated Child Protection Conference, which provided an opportunity for students and practitioners to understand a typical decision making process through a virtual case study. It is a shortened version of a simulation that takes students and practitioners from a referral into Children's Social Care through to chairing a core group meeting. The aim was to enable those involved to reflect on various aspects of child protection, rather than providing a detailed and realistic account of the process of undertaking a child protection conference.

Part of our role within the Centre for Seldom Heard Voices is to use our platform to amplify seldom heard voices. In collaboration with the BU PIER (Public Involvement in Education and Research) partnership, we engage with many community groups, organisations, activists and campaigners who are conducting some wonderful work to promote inclusion and advance social justice across our region and further afield. Our current spotlight is on the following:
South Dorset Research Group
Are some Dorset towns a “cul-de-sac” from which young people struggle to escape, never to return? The largest urban area in rural Dorset has the lowest social mobility in England – marked by falling wages, thin job prospects and increasing deprivation. This is Weymouth and Portland, where industry has collapsed and the economy is in steep decline.
Who cares? For decades, local authorities and development agencies have ignored evidence of economic and social crisis. Living in “Beautiful Dorset” – with golden beaches, thatched villages and the Jurassic Coast – is surely enough? But Weymouth and Portland remains officially a “cold spot” which offers little for its young people – and in which communities feel increasingly silenced and invisibilised.
South Dorset Research Group has produced the first holistic report on these forgotten towns. It suggests that disinterest in the lives of people in South Dorset has specific impacts on women and young people - and profound implications for community networks. The report is being launched at an online seminar organised by the Centre for Seldom Heard Voices on Wednesday 20 July.Download the Forgotten Towns report (1.16mb)
