Advanced Care Research Centre

Find out more about advanced care at our online launch

We will be holding an online launch for the Advanced Care Research Centre (ACRC) on Wednesday 3rd November, 9.30am-11.30am. There will also be satellite seminars on key topics in the afternoon and following days.

The ACRC has been up and running since the start of 2021, undertaking research to improve the understanding of care in later life to revolutionise how it is delivered; and COVID-19 has highlighted the need for major change in how society provides social care.
