After a summer of renovations, the all new School of Social Sciences building opened in time for the return of the new cohort of students.
Housed in its own building, which has been specially designed to feature practical work spaces for cutting-edge teaching, the School runs both BA and MA programmes.
Social Work, Health and Wellbeing, Social Policy, Childhood and Youth, Disability Studies, Special Educational Needs, Criminology and Sociology students will all benefit from the new dedicated teaching spaces.
The official opening coincided with the launch of two reports compiled following the Care Experienced Conference, which was held at Liverpool Hope in April 2019.
Chair of the Care Experienced Conference Ian Dickson presented the reports to Head of the School of Social Sciences Professor Michael Lavalette.
The Conference was the first of its kind held in the UK, and was attended by more than 150 care experienced people aged between 14 and 82, with topics discussed including key issues and ways to support people better in the future.
The School of Social Sciences is committed to contributing to the educational, religious, cultural, social, and economic life in Liverpool and the North West.
As part of this commitment, the School has developed strong relationships and partnerships with organisations in the region, including Liverpool Local Authority, Kensington Youth Centre, Person Shaped Support, Social Work Action Network, DaDaFest and YoungDaDa.
