The ReValuing Care Network is a research network funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The key aim of the network is to create open spaces (both physical and virtual) to facilitate discussion and dialogue about how we think about care. The ReValuing Care Network aims to bring together academics, activists and advocates with an interest in âcareâ in its many forms and locations. We are committed to creating opportunities for open dialogue between academics and activists, advocates and others working in the third sector to improve the way that care is understood and valued in our society.
This website is a key aspect of the way that the network can develop, and if you are here, and interested, then we invite you to join the network so that you can take part in all of the discussions. Information about network members is displayed on your member profile on the site. To join, all you need to do is fill in the membership form, and you will have full access to all areas of the site.
On the website, we have a discussion forum, where members can discuss their work, their ideas, continue conversations started at physical events and so on. The forum is private, so you have to be a member and logged in to see it.
We also have this Blog. The ReValuing Care Blog is an open publishing space where any network member (whether you are an academic, activist, advocate, health or social care professional or whatever!) can post relevant news, views, links, events, or anything else that you can fit into a Blog post. All members will be given Blog author rights, so you will be able to post your contributions yourself. The ReValuing Care Project Team will act as editors of the blog, so if you donât see your post go up straight away, it will be because one of use has to approve it. The reason for having this human intervention is primarily to prevent spam on the blog. Unlike the forum, the Blog is a public webpage, and so anyone surfing the web can see your posts, though only network members can also comment on blog posts.
