Dr Diane Burns, Senior Lecturer in Organisation Studies in Sheffield University Management School is a member of the Sustainable Care Programme (SCP) Leadership Group and is leading the Work Package ‘Delivering care at home: emerging models and their implications for sustainability and wellbeing’. Taking an organisational approach, Diane’s research examines the relationships between types of organisational structure; funding; quality of care work jobs; and the quality of care and support older people are offered and receive. Diane became involved in the SCP to contribute new knowledge to inform the design of models and organisational structures capable of offering sustainability and wellbeing for care workers, people receiving social care and their family members.
