Publishing your qualitative social care research as resource on socialcaretalk.org (or healthtalk.org) offers an excellent opportunity to reach a wider audience and achieve that ever important research impact.
The sites, which are owned and run by us at the Dipex Charity, a UK-registered charity. Our CEO, Adam Barnett, has worked for the charity since 2008 and the charity is overseen by a board of expert trustees.
All our content is based on qualitative research conducted over the years by researchers from all over the UK and further afield. Their work is helping millions of people each year who find reassurance and support in the personal stories of others.
If you are planning a qualitative research project on a topic that could be of interest to users of socialcaretalk.org or healthtalk.org, we’d love to hear from you. Please get in touch with us to talk about your research project.

Therefore, where possible, we keep resources live on the site and up to date for as long as possible, even beyond the original funding period. Many resources on healthtalk.org and socialcaretalk.org are still going 10-15 years + past the project that formed them.
4. You’ll be supporting our charity. By becoming part of the socialcaretalk.org family, you’ll be supporting our websites and charitable work, and your research could make a positive impact on the lives of millions of people across the UK.
How could your research be presented?
Creating resources that resonate with your audience is crucial, and we encourage you to work with public and patient involvement (PPI) groups to ensure that your resource is published in the most effective output format.
The resource we develop from your research need not look like existing content on socialcaretalk.org or healthtalk.org; we can work with you to produce resources in a variety of audio-visual formats such as short films, animations, podcasts, audiobooks and more. We can even create bespoke social media platforms!
