Lunch and Learn series


In 2020/21 we will be holding four themed Lunch and Learn briefings to engage and inspire decision-makers and policymakers. We will develop thought-leading, sector- leading policy, research and practice through these dynamic, vibrant and innovative events.

Our events will provide a space for people who work in the spheres of policy, social care, education, healthcare, the third sector and public sector to share and learn together. 

Events currently scheduled include:

Why research matters in social care (12pm, 12 November 2020).
