The Care-Connect Showcase

Care-Connect is one of the 14 sector hubs at the University of Leeds. It aims to connect research with policy and practice to create and sustain caring, connected communities.

The hub is hosted by the Faculty of Education, Social Science and Law and works across the university. Since 2012 Care-Connect has sought to inform and explore the implications of policy and practice from a social, economic, legal, health and environmental perspective.

The Showcase will bring together people from the University of Leeds and external partners and will highlight the achievements Care-Connect from the previous 12 months, promoting ongoing and future activities.

The event will see the launch of our new promotional film, which has been developed in partnership with Inkwell Media.

This informal event will provide participants with the opportunity to meet with University of Leeds academics and organisations that we have worked with over the past year. You will be able to hear about our successes and discuss future opportunities, including: research collaboration opportunities, the Academy of Community Research; events and seminars; knowledge exchange/seedcorn funding opportunities; and our expertise matching service.

Drinks and light refreshments will be available.
