Centre for International Research on Care, Labour and Equalities (CIRCLE)

Operating between 2006 and 2015, CIRCLE was a research centre which carried out research, evaluation and bespoke consultancy on contemporary issues and debates in three key areas: Care; Labour; and Equalities.

The Centre was led by Director, Professor Sue Yeandle, and Deputy Director, Dr Andrea Wigfield, and comprised a strong team of academics and researchers who worked flexibly with policy makers and practitioners in the public, private and voluntary sectors as partners, collaborators, funders and clients. The team was supported by a dedicated administrative team and a pool of research associates.

On 1st October 2015, Sue Yeandle and Andrea Wigfield moved to the Department of Sociological Studies at the University of Sheffield. Enquiries should be addressed to them at their new email addresses: s.yeandle@sheffield.ac.uk and a.wigfield@sheffield.ac.uk.
