Child Health Research Network Aims

The aims of the Child Health Research Network (CHRN) are to:

  • bring together researchers in the areas of child health and social care to share research interests, expertise and ideas;
  • encourage collaborative working between different disciplines that can lead to joint research proposals;
  • increase research capacity by working with new partners across the University, NHS and local authorities, and running a network for postgraduates/early career researchers;
  • disseminate the work of the network nationally and internationally, extending partnerships with leading researchers abroad;
  • develop partnerships with the NHS and other service providers to ensure the policy and practical outputs of research and development outputs.

Manchester has significant strengths and opportunities in children’s health and social care research. There is a large population of children in Greater Manchester and the North West which is ethnically diverse, with people from a range of socio-economic backgrounds.
