Maybe should have posted this under Advice Sector Issues but just a general question on whether anyone has knowledge of any educational establishments that have an interest in welfare/disability? Anyone had contact from any universities re: research?

Thanks!

A few to start with are

Sheffield Hallam University - https://www4.shu.ac.uk/mediacentre/new-study-finds-welfare-conditionality-ineffective

Salford university - https://www.salford.ac.uk/research/care/research-groups/shusu/projects-work-and-welfare/welfare-conditionality and https://www.salford.ac.uk/research/care/research-groups/shusu/welfare

Heriot Watt - https://www.hw.ac.uk/news/articles/2019/report-highlights-impact-of-housing-benefit.htm

Those three and others are part of the welfare conditionality research - http://www.welfareconditionality.ac.uk/

I attended a colloquium held by the Centre of Disability Law and Policy at the National University of Ireland in Galway, some years ago, at which students presented a paper about their research.

If you read through the Programme at http://bbi.syr.edu/events/2010/docs/Colloquium_Programme.pdf  you’ll find out which Universities the students and invited academics came from.  However, it was a while ago, and there could well have been changes in what is on offer at each institution.
