Research & Fundraising

The Foundation believes that more research needs to be done both in the UK and overseas within the themes of neurology, brain and spinal injury, living with long term neurological conditions and progressive illness and health and educational needs in vulnerable communities.  To advance these goals, Dr Mohamed Sakel, is leading multiple research programs in the key areas of Dementia, Neuro-rehabilitation, Traumatic Brain injury, stroke, and long term neurological conditions, within his role as Global Ambassador for the SWBF and his work at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust in Canterbury.

Thus, the Foundation is heavily engaged with and committed to ongoing in-depth research in a wide range of fields relating to health, social care and educational issues, which are globally relevant.

A key research objective is to be able to more effectively identify and treat disease and illness that is impacting significantly on all societies, and by advancing our understanding, then to use this new knowledge to both develop better care and services for individuals and to ideally raise awareness of how we might be able to reduce the risk of developing these diseases through educational programs.

A research springboard for homecare

IPA-bigThe Sir William Beveridge Foundation and the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing are collaborating on a research project to assess the impact of the Foundation’s homecare service that it has been operating for over five years in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

This research project will utilise mixed methodology for the collection and statistical analysis of empirical data and the collection and non-statistical analysis of observation and interviews. In this way, it will be possible to assess the impact of the homecare service in Dhaka and its adaptability and capacity for mainstreaming among other measures.

This research will provide a springboard for potential further research in the future as well as extremely useful evidence-based information for the Foundation that can be utilised at local and national levels to help improve and expand the care being provided. Also at international level it can be utilised in papers submitted to international bodies as part of their consultation processes. The final research report is due in early 2014.
