‘The Potential of Technology in Adult Social Care‘
Policymakers and sector leaders often present technology as a solution to challenges in social care, yet the place of technology as a source of future sustainability is far from clear. James Wright, Kate Hamblin and Matthew Lariviere draw on their ongoing research to explore the potential for technology to address issues of sustainability, wellbeing and care quality.
‘Working carers in the Ministry of Justice: Summary of Research findings‘ written by Camille Allard.
The case study, conducted within the MoJ, aimed to understand what constitutes good workplace support for carers in employment, and to what extent this support is accessible to all MoJ employees (who are also UK civil servants). The report is part of the work of the research team, Combining work and care: how do workplace support and technologies contribute to sustainable care arrangements?
