About Us

The Centre for Social Policy was established in 1995 to provide a resource for people who have left posts connected to established organisations or who work independently. It is a facility to be used as fellows wish but it provides them with a link to a multi-disciplinary peer group and enables them to keep up-to-date with current issues. It is an activity within the larger charity, The Warren House Group (WHG) at Dartington, which includes the Social Research Unit.

The latest annual report is here.



Fellows contribute to these other group activities by, for example, joining project advisory groups, serving on the WHG ethical committee, offering advice to researchers, contributing to the Unit’s website Prevention Action and assisting with the editorial work associated with the Unit’s Journal of Children’s Services.  The Centre comprises over 70 fellows from five countries and representing nine disciplines. The current officers are: John Diamond (Interim Chair) Roger Bullock (Treasurer), and Kate Moule (Secretary).
