What we do

The Institute of Public Care is part of Oxford Brookes University. We aim to drive improvement and innovation in care.

We work with central and local government, health organisations, and independent and voluntary sector providers, across adults and children's services, typically in areas such as market shaping, demand management, performance management and practice delivery. The IPC offer – who we work with, what we can help with, and how – is summarised in the diagram below:
