  • ‘Location Matters’ – Michael Hirst

    If, as John Wesley declared ‘The world is my parish’, what is the significance of where the church locates and focusses its mission and ministry?
    Michael Hirst is an Honorary Fellow of the Social Policy Research Unit at the University of York. From research in human geography and lectureships in Uganda and Australia, he moved into the field of social policy at the University of York. Since then, much of his work has focused on health, employment, financial, and social costs of disability, caring, and bereavement, and the evaluation of services and benefits for disabled people and carers.
