Centre for Seldom Heard Voices
The Bournemouth University Research Centre for Seldom Heard Voices brings together academics from across different disciplines including social sciences and social work to engage with marginalised communities and to amplify often excluded or silenced voices.
The Centre has a strong track record of developing collaborative partnerships with communities and key stakeholders and for using participatory and co-created approaches. Its aim is to apply research to real-world challenges to maximise societal impact.
Research at the Centre includes collaborations with looked after children, youth in the developing world or conflict areas, rough sleepers, substance users, transgender youth and LGBT+ communities, stigmatised and threatened minorities, immigrants and trafficking victims, disabled children and adults, older people, carers, and many more. Impact includes contributions to child and adult social care practice, influencing policy, theoretical contributions to conflict resolution and community engagement and empowerment in the UK and globally including Kosovo, Albania, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Nepal and Rwanda.
