From the outset we have been contributing to research as we believe research enhances our understanding of needs, the impact and effectiveness of services and  informs strategies, policies and service development and delivery. Below are examples of some of our efforts:

In 1992 we asked students from Stockport College to carry out a survey on ‘Asian Elders’ to inform our work and those of commissioners and other providers.
