Social scientist is Trustee of National Centre for Social Research

1 December 2017

Professor Sue Heath, of The University of Manchester’s Morgan Centre for Research into Everyday Lives, has been made a Trustee of the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen).

NatCen is an independent, not for profit organisation. It believes that social research has the power to make life better. By really understanding the complexity of people’s lives and what they think about the issues that affect them, it gives the public a powerful and influential role in shaping decisions and services that can make a difference to everyone.

Sue was also elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in 2016. She told us: “NatCen is an organisation whose work I have admired throughout my career. I am looking forward to being able to use the experience I have gained from academia in a rather different research context, and to learning a great deal in the process.”

Chair of the Board of Trustees, Professor Sir Robert Burgess, said: "I wish to welcome Sue to the NatCen Board of Trustees. Her considerable experience in research methodology and ethics will enable us to continue to deliver independent, high quality research that makes society better.”
