Impact of our research

This centre was one of the largest investments by ESRC in the field of third sector and civil society research; the relevant initiatives are listed here on the ESRC website. So as we head towards our tenth anniversary that provides an opportunity for reflection on the contributions we have made to the research and, particularly, the practice landscape.

You’d expect significant research investments to at least generate coverage that would feature regularly in the relevant media, in Parliament, the BBC and elsewhere, and the links from this page provide illustrations of the most prominent among them, including questions being put to the Prime Minister on the Today programme, and a radio 4 documentary being introduced by piano playing from one of the Centre’s staff.
