For Policy Makers

Academics at Manchester Metropolitan have produced outstanding research that has influenced policy and transformed the lives of millions of people in the UK, the City and beyond. Our research directly underpins protected characteristics in the Single Equality Scheme, we transformed the UK early years’ curriculum proving that “Birth to Three Matters”, we used Treasury Funding to link the arts and wellbeing, our research into high streets has helped to shape place management policy and our research in criminal justice has led to fresh approaches to offender rehabilitation. We already “do” policy impact – MetroPolis is about amplifying this activity.
