On 1 February BVSC Research hosted an event in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Research Design Service West Midlands and North West to discuss how the research community can better support the voluntary and community sector to engage in social care research and influence the research agenda.

This was the first of two events addressing barriers to voluntary and community sector engagement in research, and examining how the sector can help drive evidence-based practice in social care.
