CIRU stands for Community Information and Research Unit. Our mission is to serve as a formal /informal knowledge resource for the wider community, enhancing public engagement and producing high quality and relevant research and data designed to contribute to the social and economic wellbeing of the community. We aim to examine the social and economic issues impacting on communities, demonstrate the effectiveness of models of good practice and inform those who could best utilise our findings. CIRU seeks to facilitate cross sector partnerships and collaborations between local residents, voluntary/community groups, mainstream organisations & institutions, the private sector and universities.
