Ethics Support

“Ethics by design” allows a consideration of ethical issues to be embedded in the design of a project, from its initial conception through to completion.

If you are involved in a major research project and would like to speak to us about embedded ethics involvement from the research design stage, please contact us at

Our data ethics team also provides a data ethics advisory service for all types of research and statistical projects. Visit the UK Statistics Authority’s data ethics service and the National Statistician’ Data Ethics Advisory Committee for further information.

The Centre for Applied Data Ethics provides researchers and statisticians with practical guidance, training, and support in the effective and ethical use of data for the public good. The video below outlines some of the services that the Centre offers.
