Better Care Systems


Research exploring how we can build better and fairer care systems in a future of robots, exoskeletons, and smart homes.

We believe that technology cannot replace care, but used well it could support radical social and structural change, taking us towards a future care system that is sustainable, fair and effective.

So with support from Google.org, this project is exploring the following questions:

  • What are the future social impacts of care technologies that we need to be thinking about now?
  • How do both the UK’s care infrastructure, and care technologies themselves, need to change to anticipate these impacts?
  • In a technology-mediated society, how can the wider effects of care relationships be better recognised and understood?

Get involved

As part of this project we’re running one-day workshops for people who use care and support services, people who work and volunteer in the sector, and people who provide care to loved ones. They’ll be an opportunity to think creatively and radically about a future in which care, care work, and care relationships are better valued and understood.

We will cover the cost of travel and expenses for taking part in the day.

The workshop dates are:
