Cardiff University has recently been awarded a £3m grant from Health and Care Research Wales to establish the Centre for Adult Social Care Research (CARE). The Centre will bring together multi-disciplinary expertise from across the university, and foster collaboration with experts elsewhere in the UK, to develop cutting-edge research on adult social care, underpinned by substantial UK-level research funding. Dr Paul Willis has been appointed as the first Director of CARE and will take up his post in Autumn 2023.
The development of CARE will be supported by the Children’s Social Care Research and Development Centre (CASCADE), which is the largest research centre of its kind in the UK. CARE offices will be located in the university’s new sbarc | spark building. Sbarc | spark is the first social science research park in the world. Part of the university’s £300m Innovation Campus, this purpose-built facility co-locates world-leading social science researchers with organisations and representatives from the public, third and private sectors - some of which are focused on social care - all working together to address the major complex challenges facing societies.

Also you will contribute to the research record of the Centre for Adult Social Care Research (CARE) and Centre for Trials Research (CTR) through commitment to carrying out research leading to the publishing of high-quality research
