REF 2021: Unit of Assessment 20

UOA 20: Social Work and Social Policy

This is the first time we have submitted to this Unit of Assessment. Social work and social policy research at Bournemouth University focuses on marginalised or seldom heard voices; making lives better for people who are silenced, excluded and marginalised from and within society. The key purpose of our research in the unit is to grow sustainable and interdisciplinary collaborations that demonstrate the application of social science in contemporary society, both nationally and internationally, by challenging discrimination, oppression, inequalities and abuse whilst championing safeguarding and social justice.
