/img/service-1.png" alt="About CISHeW">

Cardiff Institute of Society, Health and Wellbeing (CISHeW) is a new research institute within Cardiff School of Social Sciences at Cardiff University.

Building upon a legacy of methodologically innovative multi-disciplinary research, we are developing adventurous methods for engagement and partnership in the social sciences, arts, humanities and community development.

Our projects focus on social action, policy dialogue, the dynamic nature of health and wellbeing, and social justice. We often take a collaborative approach to our research, working alongside civil society groups and community members, service providers, artists and policy makers.
