Welcome to the Partnership.

The Partnership brings together the academic expertise from the University of the West of Scotland, the social justice and anti-poverty campaigning strengths of Oxfam Scotland, and the local knowledge and capacities of a wide range of civil society organisations to conduct research and inform policy debates with the overarching objective to work together for a more equitable and sustainable Scotland.

On November 26th, the Partnership published ‘Caring in difficult times – personal testimonies from those who care in Scotland’. The report shines a light on the stories of six different carers and care workers, revealing the daily challenges they face, from their own personal health and wellbeing, to financial pressures and a lack of social recognition. It also includes one testimony written by the founder of a carer’s centre, reporting about how important support is for carers. Find the report here
