- Working in partnership with Occupational Therapists, service users, stakeholders and other professional groups at a local, national and international level, to co-create, co-design and implement clinically relevant occupation-centred research across the lifespan for those who have developmental, physical or mental health conditions.

As an academic discipline, occupational science seeks to explain and evidence the relationships between what people do in their everyday lives and their well-being. Occupational science contributes to the scientific and research base for Occupational Therapy practice.
“Occupational science is the study of the human as an occupational being... over the lifespan" Yerxa (1991 p6.)
Our vision is to deliver health-related, occupation-centred research which expands the occupational science knowledge base and develops clinical practice, supporting the use of occupational therapy in real world settings.
