The Connect Centre

The Connect Centre for International Research on Interpersonal Violence and Harm, based in the School of Health, Social Work and Sport at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), is a multi-disciplinary team with established expertise and an international reputation for research on domestic abuse and other forms of child violence and abuse. The Centre regularly undertakes evaluations of interventions for children and families, and interventions aimed at system change. The Centre specialises in studies that prioritise the experiences and perspectives of service users, including children and young people, to better understand what works, with which groups and in what contexts.
