Sustainable Care: connecting people and systems

Lead Research Organisation: University of Sheffield
Department Name: Sociological Studies

Abstract

Our programme focuses on the care needs of adults living at home with chronic health problems or disabilities, and seeks sustainable solutions to the UK's contemporary 'crisis of care'. It is distinctive in investigating sustainability and wellbeing in care holistically across care systems, work and relationships; addresses disconnection between theorisations of care in different disciplines; and locates all its research in the context of international scholarship, actively engaging with policy partners.

It will fill knowledge gaps, contribute new theoretical ideas and data analyses, and provide useful, accurate evidence to inform care planning, provision and experience. It develops and critically engages with policy and theoretical debates about: care infrastructure (systems, networks, partnerships, standards); divisions of caring labour/the political economy of care (inequalities, exploitation); care ethics, rights, recognition and values (frameworks, standards, entitlements, wellbeing outcomes); care technologies and human-technological interactions; and care relations in emotional, familial, community and intergenerational context.

Our team comprises 20 scholars in 7 universities, linked to an international network spanning 15 countries. Our programme comprises integrative activities, in which the whole team works together to develop a new conceptual framework on sustainable care and wellbeing, and two Work Strands, each with 4 linked projects, on 'Care Systems' & 'Care Work & Relationships'.

'Care Systems' will: (i) study prospects, developments and differentiation in the four care systems operating in England, N. Ireland, Scotland & Wales, comparing their approaches to markets, privatisation and reliance on unpaid care; (ii) model costs and contributions in care, covering those of carers and employers as well as public spending on care; (iii) assess the potential of emerging technologies to enhance care system sustainability; and (iv) analyse, in a dynamic policy context, migrant care workers' role in the sustainability of homecare.

'Care Work & Relationships' will: (i) develop case studies of emerging homecare models, and assess their implications for sustainable wellbeing; (ii) focus on carers who combine employment with unpaid care, filling gaps in knowledge about the effectiveness of workplace support and what care leave and workplace standard schemes can contribute to sustainable care arrangements; (iii) explore how care technologies can be integrated to support working carers, ensuring wellbeing outcomes across caring networks; and (iv) investigate care 'in' and 'out of' place, as systems adapt or come under pressure associated with population diversity and mobility.

Each project will collaborate with our international partners. These scholars, in 26 collaborating institutions, will ensure we learn from others about ways of understanding, measuring or interpreting developments in how care is organised and experienced, and keep up to date with latest research and scholarship.

Our capacity-building strategy will build future scholarly expertise in the study of sustainability and wellbeing in care, and ensure our concepts, methods, and research findings achieve international standards of excellence. Universities in our partnership are contributing 5 UK & 12 overseas PhD studentships, enabling us to form an international early career scholar network on sustainable care, supported by our senior team and partners.

Our impact strategy, led by Carers UK, involves leading UK and international policy partners. Informing policy, practice and debate, we will co-produce analyses and guidance, enhance data quality, promote good practice and engage decision-makers, policymakers, practitioners in the public, private and voluntary sectors, carers, people with care needs, and the media. Our Advisory Board of leading academics, policy/practice figures and opinion formers will guide all our work.

Planned Impact

Our mission is to develop and promote a deeper appreciation and implementation of sustainable care, providing lasting economic and societal benefits in care and caring and establishing human wellbeing principles across health and social care systems. We can no longer afford a fragmented set of systems and services, or care workforces that are undervalued or invisible. Our impact strategy aims to embed these findings and principles across systems, and for the people who contribute to, and should benefit from, them. 'Sustainable care' must become part of national and international narratives about responding to pressures in care systems, work & relationships.
We have built our team with impact as a central focus. Our longstanding collaboration with Carers UK has supported us in conceptualising our approach. Letters from other policy/practice partners testify to their willingness to develop coordinated messages about sustainable care aimed at making a difference at macro and micro levels. Key stakeholders have pledged to use their influence within care structures to shape and change how policymakers, decision-makers, regulatory and advisory bodies, users of care and carers, and providers of care services, act, relate to one another, organise and plan their work, re-shaping arrangements for rising care needs in a changing world. They include Care England & Unison, representing independent care providers and care workers; Telecare Services Assoc., Digital Health & Care Alliance & DHealth, offering leadership on technology and care, and Carers Resource & CIPD, leaders on work/care policy and practice for carers and HR professionals.
We are thus well positioned to influence all levels of care. At the level of systems we will use our evidence to shape future policy and practice in the UK and internationally on how care is organised, delivered, monitored and funded; how care systems are supported by families, migrant workers and care technologies; how flexibilities in employment arrangements affect care systems; and how systems can be reconfigured to meet the needs of mobile and diverse populations. By developing the leading framework for policy and practice in care and caring, we will keep the sustainability of systems and wellbeing of people at the forefront, shaping development of national guidelines with new indicators of sustainability and wellbeing to inform priorities in use of economic and human resources. Committed partners the WHO, Eurocarers, AGEWELL, CSA Group, IACO and the Swedish Care Competence Centre, with our Advisory Board, chaired by Eurofound's Robert Anderson, and with an influential membership (local government, EHRC, TUC), will help us meet this goal.
At the levels of care work and relationships, we will improve how care providers, carers, employers and people who need/receive care, experience the everyday realities of care and caring. Partners CIPD, TUC, Employers for Carers and CSA Group have pledged to work with us to change practice, disseminate messages and improve the quality of life of those who provide and receive care. Together we will influence national and international debates on paid care leave, deliver a framework for new workplace standards and establish indicators to measure the impact of workplace support for carers. Unison will engage with us to develop guidance on sustainable innovations in homecare and best practice in deployment of migrant care workers. Partners DHealth, Digital Health & Care Alliance and AGEWELL will help us influence the design, uptake and use of innovative care technologies in the UK and beyond.
We are privileged to have Madeleine Starr MBE of Carers UK as Director of Impact. Through her role our findings will feed directly into Carers UK, leveraging its proven ability to influence change at local, national & international legislative and policy levels, collaborate across a wide range of stakeholders, and engage with, consult and speak for the UK's 6.5m carers.

Description The research team commenced its activities to generate impact in the first months of the award, as planned. We began with activities to deepen and strengthen the partnerships linked to our award. This was done by: · agreeing formal 'Participation Agreements' (reported elsewhere); · briefing all our partners on our research plans; · sharing our early work on conceptual development through presentations to selected partners and in workshops; · working with partners (as appropriate) at the work package level to further specify our research questions and activities and to ensure these are meaningful in the evolving policy context for adult social care in the UK and internationally. In May 2018 we introduced key partners the Care Quality Commission (official regulator), Care England (employer body); and Carers UK (charity and 'voice of carers') to all the newly appointed members of our research team at meetings in London. This initiated two-way dialogue which has already borne fruit in generating fruitful collaboration at work package level. In spring-summer 2018 we organised a series of policy Round Tables on 'Re-imagining Care', co-produced by the Sustainable Care team and Carers UK, to set the context for the research, engage partners and stakeholders in shaping our impact agenda, and to contribute thinking relevant to the forthcoming Government consultation on social care. Thes resulted in seven 'Policy Perspectives'. In spring 2018, to build and strengthen relationships with policy partners and stakeholders in the four nations of the UK, (working through partner Carers UK's national offices in London, Glasgow, Belfast and Cardiff), we organised a series of one-day meetings to engage in academic/policy dialogue. We used these to identify opportunities, challenges and key developments in adult social care in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and to build and deepen relationships across the research team with external partners. These are already bearing fruit in terms of research engagement and impact, and in some cases are supporting us with research design and research access. Subsequently, and in various other meetings (reported elsewhere) with the PI and work package leaders, we have engaged directly with relevant contracted partners to discuss our research design and implementation strategies. For example, the employer forum Employers for Carers is working closely and regularly with our team researching work-care reconciliation. The forum is making introductions to its member companies, includes our team in its member networking events, and is working with us to plan research with impact which will create real change - first, at the level of policy on working carers, and secondly at the level of employment practices in supporting workers with caring responsibilities. In winter 2018-19 we used the additional ESRC resources awarded to us for international engagement to arrange visits and consultations in which we planned future collaboration which will generate impact at the international level. Reported elsewhere, these include engaging with employers and trade unions in Japan, with the Canadian Standards Association in Toronto, and with the Carers Rights and Complaints Network and the New South Wales Department of Family and Community Services in Australia. All are interested in ongoing collaboration with us as we develop and promote our conceptual work on sustainable care, and have asked to be kept informed as our research findings emerge. We are confident the above activities, and related conversations and contacts with partners, are succeeding in helping us shape public debate and discussions in the care sector about future resourcing and organisation of care. We are also actively working with industry and designers on technology and care, including through our partner the TSA (technology-enabled care services association), and progressing links with organisations that support and work with home care workers, including migrant workers, unions and locally and regionally based NGOs.

Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution PI Yeandle is a collaborator on the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council and Canadian Institutes of Health Research funded project "Mobilizing a Caregiver-Friendly Workplace Standard: A Partnership Approach".
Collaborator Contribution There are more than 5.6 million employees in Canada with adult/elder care responsibilities and 35% of them are simultaneously employed (2012). Lack of workplace support can result in carer-employees (CEs) leaving the workforce, and/or missed work days, or early retirements which can impact employers in terms of reduced productivity and avoidable costs due to a range of HR issues, such as turnover and absenteeism. Given the gendered nature of both family caregiving and the labour sector, it is incumbent upon workplaces to implement gender-sensitive caregiver-friendly workplace practices (CFWPs) to appropriately accommodate CEs whilst sustaining efficiencies in the workplace. Doing so enhances work-life balance, workforce retention, and reduces health costs. The Healthy, Productive Workplace -- Partnership Development Grant (HPW-PDG) allowed McMaster University to partner with the Canadian Standards Association, among others, to create a bilingual Caregiver Inclusive and Accommodating Workplace Organizations Standard for Canadian workplaces. This HPW-Partnership Grant (PG) will mobilize uptake of the Standard in Canada and abroad, while accruing evidence on the Standard's broader health and economic impacts.GOALS: In partnership with: (i) academic researchers; (ii) a range of diverse, committed partners - representing academia, government, non-government/non-profit, private business/service providers, and labour, and; (iii) collaborators representing various industries, the proposed partnership will disseminate and mobilize the Standard across Canada and the world. We will deliver a sex and gender-sensitive program of research to assist CEs, human resource professionals, unions, workers associations, government organizations, and a variety of employers, to implement the successful uptake of the Standard. RESEARCH PROGRAM: Led by Dr. Allison Williams, a CIHR Research Chair in Gender, Work and Health, and the Sex and Gender Champion for the PG, the proposed research program will be executed by a geographically representative group of invited partners and collaborators, together with world-class academic researchers with unmatched expertise in this field. In addition to the internationalization of the Standard (Project 1), where the Canadian Standards Association will follow a specific standards protocol, an international comparative review of CFWPs will be undertaken to provide a baseline for the global uptake. Carers Canada will lead Project 2, which includes a rigorous program of knowledge mobilization and evaluation. Project 3 involves a qualitative assessment of experts, recruited from the Conference Board of Canada, to diagnose readiness to support CEs in Canadian organizations. The results of Project 3 will inform a feasibility study (Project 4), which will be realized in partnership with Habanero Consulting Inc. Working with a host of partners representing precarious workers and cultural minority groups, Projects 5 and 6 will realize the Standard's cultural competency/ safety. RESEARCH OUTCOMES: This proposed research project, which includes a robust knowledge mobilization program, will support new thinking and behavior that will lead to improvements in the economic, social, cultural and intellectual well-being in Canada and internationally. Research capacity will be built, with 29 trainees and 2 emerging scholars integrated in all aspects of the research, governance and partnership. New knowledge about CFWPs will be generated, providing the evidence needed for continued uptake of the Standard, and informing curricula in business management/HR -- both of which will ensure ongoing sustainability of the Standard as a significant intervention in improving healthy, productive workplaces in Canada and abroad.

Research capacity will be built, with 29 trainees and 2 emerging scholars integrated in all aspects of the research, governance and partnership. New knowledge about CFWPs will be generated, providing the evidence needed for continued uptake of the Standard, and informing curricula in business management/HR -- both of which will ensure ongoing sustainability of the Standard as a significant intervention in improving healthy, productive workplaces in Canada and abroad.

Description Mobilizing a Caregiver-Friendly Workplace Standard: A Partnership Approach 
Organisation Carleton University
Country Canada 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution PI Yeandle is a collaborator on the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council and Canadian Institutes of Health Research funded project "Mobilizing a Caregiver-Friendly Workplace Standard: A Partnership Approach".
Collaborator Contribution There are more than 5.6 million employees in Canada with adult/elder care responsibilities and 35% of them are simultaneously employed (2012). Lack of workplace support can result in carer-employees (CEs) leaving the workforce, and/or missed work days, or early retirements which can impact employers in terms of reduced productivity and avoidable costs due to a range of HR issues, such as turnover and absenteeism. Given the gendered nature of both family caregiving and the labour sector, it is incumbent upon workplaces to implement gender-sensitive caregiver-friendly workplace practices (CFWPs) to appropriately accommodate CEs whilst sustaining efficiencies in the workplace. Doing so enhances work-life balance, workforce retention, and reduces health costs. The Healthy, Productive Workplace -- Partnership Development Grant (HPW-PDG) allowed McMaster University to partner with the Canadian Standards Association, among others, to create a bilingual Caregiver Inclusive and Accommodating Workplace Organizations Standard for Canadian workplaces. This HPW-Partnership Grant (PG) will mobilize uptake of the Standard in Canada and abroad, while accruing evidence on the Standard's broader health and economic impacts.GOALS: In partnership with: (i) academic researchers; (ii) a range of diverse, committed partners - representing academia, government, non-government/non-profit, private business/service providers, and labour, and; (iii) collaborators representing various industries, the proposed partnership will disseminate and mobilize the Standard across Canada and the world. We will deliver a sex and gender-sensitive program of research to assist CEs, human resource professionals, unions, workers associations, government organizations, and a variety of employers, to implement the successful uptake of the Standard. RESEARCH PROGRAM: Led by Dr. Allison Williams, a CIHR Research Chair in Gender, Work and Health, and the Sex and Gender Champion for the PG, the proposed research program will be executed by a geographically representative group of invited partners and collaborators, together with world-class academic researchers with unmatched expertise in this field. In addition to the internationalization of the Standard (Project 1), where the Canadian Standards Association will follow a specific standards protocol, an international comparative review of CFWPs will be undertaken to provide a baseline for the global uptake. Carers Canada will lead Project 2, which includes a rigorous program of knowledge mobilization and evaluation. Project 3 involves a qualitative assessment of experts, recruited from the Conference Board of Canada, to diagnose readiness to support CEs in Canadian organizations. The results of Project 3 will inform a feasibility study (Project 4), which will be realized in partnership with Habanero Consulting Inc. Working with a host of partners representing precarious workers and cultural minority groups, Projects 5 and 6 will realize the Standard's cultural competency/ safety. RESEARCH OUTCOMES: This proposed research project, which includes a robust knowledge mobilization program, will support new thinking and behavior that will lead to improvements in the economic, social, cultural and intellectual well-being in Canada and internationally.

Results and Impact As the deadline for a final Brexit deal approaches, close attention is being paid to statistics on the number of EU citizens living in Britain. In late August, after the Office for National Statistics published its latest long-term international migration estimates, news reports continued to talk of a "Brexodus" - the exodus of EU citizens from the UK ahead of Brexit. But such commentary, which is mirrored in academic debate, is overblown and it's symptomatic of the assumptions made about how mobile the EU migrants who've made their homes in Britain actually are.

Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact Professor Louise Ryan and Dr Majella Kilkey of the Sustainable Care programme recently had an article published in The Conversation, regarding a new report by the UK's Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) on the impact of migration from the EU.

Contrary to the negative stereotypes perpetuated by many politicians and sections of the media, a comprehensive new report from the UK's Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has found that migration from the EU has a positive impact on many areas of society.

The long-awaited report made a set of recommendations which the government has promised to consider before announcing its own post-Brexit immigration strategy. The key recommendation is that, unless there is a specific trade deal reached between the EU and UK which makes special provision for immigration, EU citizens should be treated no differently from non-EU citizens under a new UK-managed migration system.

Before reaching its recommendations, the MAC undertook an extensive consultation. It concluded that migration from the European Economic Area (EEA) - the EU states plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway - does not, on the whole, have a negative impact on society.

It has little or no impact on the overall employment, unemployment and wages of UK-born workers. It has a positive impact on productivity and innovation, especially so from highly skilled migration. EEA migrants also contribute more in taxation than they consume in services, especially so for the NHS and social care.

Results and Impact On 5 February Carers UK released a report on working carers, Juggling work and unpaid care: A growing issue, which found that 2.6 million people have quit their job to care for a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill, with nearly half a million (468,000) leaving their job in the last two years alone - more than 600 people a day. This is a 12 per cent increase since Carers UK and YouGov polled the public in 2013. The findings also show that more people are caring than previously thought, with almost 5 million workers now juggling their paid job with caring - a dramatic rise compared with Census 2011 figures of 3 million. The research was released to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Employers for Carers, Carers UK's business forum of more than 115 employers committed to supporting carers in the workplace, and the launch of Carer Confident, the first UK-wide employer benchmarking scheme of its kind.

- LBC Breakfast with Nick Ferrari
- BBC Two Victoria Derbyshire show
- BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour

Results and Impact 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the National Assistance Act (NAA) 1948, which helped to shape social services into their current form.

The Act created a safety net for people who, through circumstances such as old age or disability, could not pay into national insurance.

The Act created a legal duty for local authorities to provide suitable accommodation for those for whom support was not available elsewhere It was this legislation that underpinned care for older people, people with disabilities and people in need of mental health services until the Care Act 2014.

At this event, we will discuss and share early findings from the ESRC's Sustainable Care Programme (Comparing UK Care Systems). Speakers include Professor Catherine Needham, Professor Jon Glasby and Patrick Hall. They will discuss how the UK's four nations are developing and their different relationships to the NAA. We will also explore the history and the ongoing legacy of the NAA, including: health and care integration, the role of local government and the third sector.

Primary Audience Industry/Business
Results and Impact Various demographic, social and economic shifts across Europe and Asia have increased concern regarding the ability of these societies to provide sufficient quality and quantity care for their older citizens. As both the UK and Japan continue to age, health and care systems will have to adapt to be able to afford health services. To put it in context, in Japan in 2016 27.3% of the population were over 65 and, according to OECD figures, health care expenditure has risen from 6.3% of GDP in 1995 to 10.9% in 2015. In the UK, 18.5% of population are currently over 65 and health care expenditure accounted for 9.8% of GDP in 2016. How health and care systems adapt to cope with these challenges is a key issue in both the UK and Japan.

Patrick Hall, an RA on Sustainable Care, looked at how changes in societies have created new social challenges, and the effects that these changes have had on the concept and provision of care and the composition of care systems. He then discussed his work in comparing care regimes in the UK and what he thinks the British and Japanese systems can learn from one another.

Health and social care systems around the world are relying on a hidden workforce - a group of people in society who often go unrecognized, are undervalued and unsupported. Unpaid caregivers provide a crucial safety net for national health care structures across the world. The interdependence of paid and unpaid carework must be taken into account as we design, build and tend our increasingly important and strained care economies.

While progress is slow, home care and caregivers have been recognized in Canada's federal, provincial and territorial Shared Health Priorities. Jurisdictions are putting in place new approaches to enhance access to care in the home and support the vital role of caregivers. The International Forum on Care and Caregiving facilitates knowledge exchange to shape health and social care in Canada and internationally. This full day event draws on world-class research, innovative policies and puts a spotlight on practical solutions to support care and caregiving.

On 9 November Vicky Sargent, Founder and co-owner at CLGdotTV, tweeted:
Could social care benefit from an extra £132bn? It already does, Madeleine Starr MBE, Director of Business Development at Carers UK told me in the discussion we had at the recent CLGdotTV 'Audience With' on health and social care.
While there is great legislative framework laid down in the Care Act, unpaid carers in the UK still struggle to get the support they need, despite being worth 'a second NHS' to the UK economy.
6.5 million carers look after friends, family or neighbours who through illness, disability or old age need care that is not being provided by the NHS or formal care services.
This contribution, and indeed social care generally, is not sufficiently valued by those in power to support it with proper funding.
The situation has arisen partly because of the UK's artificial divide between health and social care, with the 'heroes' of the NHS always coming first in the queue for money.
But it is not just about money: our siloed system also prevents the sort of integration in care provision being seen overseas in places like the Netherlands and Estonia.

'If we fail to meet social care needs adequately we are likely to see a decrease in labour market participation levels, especially among women, as greater numbers undertake informal care'. That was the warning from the Department of Health and Social Care this week, as part of the evidence it provided the committee advising on immigration rules post Brexit. Unless we can secure the future of our care workforce, more of us, and in particular more women, will end up giving up paid jobs to meet the growing need for care.

Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact In the twenty years since the devolution arrangements the four nations of the UK (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) have gone their separate ways with their care arrangements. Research that we are conducting for the ESRC Sustainable Care programme, highlights the different principles which are shaping care systems in the four areas.

The 'natural experiment' idea of comparing the four nations, 20 years on from a common starting point in 1998, has been one of the first casualties of our project. It is clear that the four countries did not have the same care systems in 1998. This is partly because of historical patterns of service difference and partly due to demographic characteristics. It is also due to the extent to which what it means to care is embedded in conceptions of self, family and community: each of which is part of the sense of distinctiveness of the four nations. Through the project we are exploring how best to categorise the four within broader care typologies. It is also important to recognise that some key policies which affect the care system are still retained at the UK level (such as immigration, disability benefits and statutory care leave).

The event in England engaged with a number of nation stakeholders to gather their opinions and ideas on our work package Comparing UK Care Systems: prospects, development and differentiation in the four UK nations. These included: Surrey County Council, Department for Work and Pensions, NHS England, Age UK, Disability Law Service, Community Care and Disability Law Service, MS Society and Care & Support Alliance, Healthwatch, DHSC, Carers UK.

Results and Impact Symposium to mark the kick-off of their work package "Care 'In' and 'Out of' Place: towards sustainability and wellbeing in diverse and mobile contexts". Work Package Leaders Majella Kilkey and Louise Ryan brought together leading academics on ageing, care and migration, as well as practitioners and community organisations from across the country. Research Associate Magda Lorinc and PhD student Obert Tawodzera were also involved.

The speakers discussed the 'state of the art' in academic research on how ageing and care needs are experienced and negotiated through migration. The experiences of retiree migrants in Spain and France, and the likely impact of Brexit, were examined by Alistair Hunter (University of Edinburgh), Inés Calzada (Complutense University Madrid; SC academic partner), Dan Horsfall (University of York) and Kelly Hall (University of Birmingham; SC researcher). Presenting research on ageing migrants in the UK, Elisabetta Zontini (University of Nottingham) focused on Italian migrants in Nottingham and how relations with the country of origin shifted through the life course. Shereen Hussein (Kings College London; SC Co-Investigator), drew on research with Turkish migrants to consider how experiences of ageing were shaped by the intersections of gender, class and ethnicity. Julia Brannen (UCL) discussed methodological issues in conducting research across different generations of migrant men. Omar Khan (Runnymede Trust), presented statistical data on the persistent patterns of inequality across older BME groups in the UK. Meanwhile, the practical challenges facing ageing migrants in the UK and the varying community resources available to them were discussed by representatives from Irish, Polish and African-Caribbean organisations. These are the three populations of ageing migrants which the project Care 'In' and 'Out of' Place will focus upon. Tamara Fieldsend (Polish Drop-in Centre & Library, Barnsley), Clinton McKoy & Olivier Tsemo (SADACCA, Sheffield), Mary Tilki (Cuimhne, Irish Memory Loss Alliance) and Barbara Drozdowicz (East European Resource Centre, London) discussed their shared experiences of voluntary sector funding cuts in the context of Austerity, as well as the increasingly hostile anti-immigration environment. The recent example of the 'children of Windrush', several of whom were threatened with deportation despite living in the UK for most of their lives, sparked much discussion about how immigration policies are impacting upon particular communities, including when they try to access benefits and health and social care provisions in older age Moreover, this issue also underlined the concerns of EU citizens about the security of their status and entitlement to access services after Brexit.

The event provided much food for thought and highlighted the need for ongoing research around migration, ageing and care, especially in the current context of Brexit and Austerity policies, and allowed the Work Package team to introduce the SC work to a wider audience.
