Welcome to the Men, Women and Care project, a European Research Council-funded project based at the University of Leeds, led by Dr Jessica Meyer. Here you will find all the details about the project as it continues, including information about the project team and our research partners, a regularly updated blog about our research and the development of the PIN 26 database, and information about news and events related to the project.

Please contact the project via the contact page or directly at hismwc@leeds.ac.uk with any comments or queries.  We are keen to hear from anyone with interest in the provision of care, both medical and social, to disabled ex-servicemen after the First World War.
