This launch of the Policy Briefs is chaired jointly by Prof Katherine Runswick-Cole and Prof Dan Goodley of the University of Sheffield’s Department of Education and the iHuman research centre.
The group has been working to address issues in practice and policy-making at the local and national level. The Crook Public Service Fellowship scheme is hosted by the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Sheffield, and is an opportunity for future leaders in the public and third sectors to work collaboratively with researchers from the university on pressing challenges around a shared theme.
