Making Research Count

Making Research Count (MRC) is a national initiative and unique collaboration, bringing together academics, practitioners and users to facilitate the dissemination of research and theory within a social care context.

The University of Salford is the regional hub for Making Research Count in Greater Manchester and aims to use research to integrate services and practice across the city-region.
