Research Network on Informal and Formal Caregiving

Our network brings together academics, informal caregivers and caring professionals who are concerned about and/or involved in researching contemporary issues and contributing to debates on informal caregiving and caregiving in employment.


Questions about how we manage care and caring at the individual, family, community and population level in the context of demographic ageing are increasingly domi­nating discourse in social policy research, health policy and health and social care practice. This network is researching and debating these issues and giving a voice to caregivers. In so doing it is helping to inform policy and developing solutions to the related challenges.
