SWIRLS dives deep into the whirlpool of information, theories, opinions and facts that make up our modern world. We take the spin out, concentrate on research that uses evidence and lived-experience, and create innovative solutions in and around social work.
We are an established centre that makes meaningful connections between research, practice and policy. Our research environment is informed by appreciative inquiry and participatory action research. We offer evidence that has the power to promote social justice values and shape our future workforce through knowledge, education, and professional development.
