Prior to starting this project I completed my undergraduate degree in Sociology and an MA in Social Policy at the University of Durham. 

The studentship is funded by Liverpool's Furniture Resource Company (FRC) whose goal as prominent social enterprise in the UK is to End Furniture Poverty. The PhD covers a range of themes including the 'diverse economies' perspective, the role of social enterprise within diverse economies, and how furniture and furnishings in the home facilitate a decent quality of life and the ability to participate in the norms of society.
