I lead the research unit PenCRU, which undertakes a programme of applied health services research aimed at identifying ways to improve the health and wellbeing of disabled children and their families. PenCRU receives core funding through a grant from the UK charity Cerebra, and seeks further funding to carry out specific major research projects. The goals of PenCRU are consistent with the broader mission of PenCLAHRC, whilst being focused on childhood disability research. PenCRU involves families of disabled children as partners in all the activities of the unit through our Family Faculty. The vision for PenCRU is to work in partnership with families, clinicians and commissioners as the principal users of our research findings.
