Welcome to our blog!

We are the Newcastle Institute for Social Renewal. The Newcastle Institute for Social Renewal is the University’s response to the challenges facing society today. By bringing together our research with a social purpose we can make a difference to how individuals and communities thrive in times of rapid transformational change. As one of Newcastle University’s three Societal Challenge Themes it brings to life the University vision of a civic university with a global reputation for academic excellence.

Social Renewal is a wide and varied term, and sometimes it’s not easy to understand what it really means. By hosting this blog we’re hoping to show that Social Renewal is important to each and every one of us, in ways you might not realise.

We’re really interested in hearing your thoughts, so please get involved! Use the comments button on any of the posts to have your say on the important issues facing society today. Also, if you have any ideas for future blogs just let us know. Email socialrenewal@ncl.ac.uk and we would love to have you as a guest blogger! You can also follow us on Twitter or visit the main website for more information on our research activities.
