Tizard Centre (University of Kent)
The Tizard Centre is a leading UK academic centre working in autism, learning disability and community care. Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the Tizard Centre is at the forefront of research into autism, intellectual disability and community care. The work is highly influential and has helped to improve lives across the UK and internationally.
Tizard Centre aims to share our expertise via study programmes and research projects. The centre has strong links with health and social care organisations and many students come to Tizard thanks to a personal recommendation.
This pioneering approach dates back to the first Director, Jim Mansell who in 2012 was awarded a CBE. In 2013, the centre received a Queen's Anniversary Prize in recognition of its outstanding work in the field.
