The Hadley Research Programme at the Rees Centre

The Hadley Trust has a keen interest in improving practice in children’s social care by funding research and active dissemination of findings. Initially the Trust funded the work of the Hadley Centre at the University of Bristol (2000-2019). Funding has now transferred to the Hadley research programme based at the Rees Centre where work on understanding and improving the lives of looked after and adopted children continues with ongoing research led by Professor Julie Selwyn including Bright Spots.
