Crime & justice
Our work spans: victimisation and crime & punishment; the civil justice system; and the organisation of the legal profession.
Our studies range from how people volunteer in Britain today and investigating why communities fragment, as in the case of the August riots.
We have substantial experience of conducting large, complex surveys, as well as in-depth, qualitative studies in most areas covered by family policies.

We have a long tradition and extensive experience of conducting research about social inclusion.
Health & wellbeing
Our research spans general health and lifestyle studies to studies focussing on particular health issues or sections of the population.
