Making Research Count at King’s

Welcome to Making Research Count London

Making Research Count (MRC) London is a collaborative research dissemination initiative which has been based at King's since April 2005. MRC works in partnership with local authorities, the NHS, the voluntary sector and other relevant bodies to contribute to the development of research-informed, evidence-based practice among social workers and their managers. Our activity brings together the best of practitioner knowledge and expertise, knowledge from research, and information and expertise from service users and carers.

We are in partnership with twenty local authorities: 

Ealing – Lewisham – Greenwich – Bexley – Bromley – Lambeth – Hounslow – Camden – Southwark – Wandsworth – Merton – Havering – Hammersmith and Fulham – Westminster – Kensington and Chelsea – Kingston – Harrow – Hillingdon – Slough – Richmond – & also King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

In 2020, over 11,000 practitioners attended our regional programme, run in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire,  with an additional 65 seminars being provided in-house (online) to practitioners.

Making Research Count makes an important contribution in helping practitioners become more informed about the latest research and theories in social work. It is an initiative designed to support the development of evidence-informed and thoughtful practitioners, and as such is likely to be helpful to agencies committed to developing practice excellence.
