Strathclyde Region


Strathclyde Region was created in 1976 as a result of local government reorganisation. It was the largest regional authority in Scotland, it was responsible for providing local government and services to more than 2 million people covered living in the West of Scotland. It was abolished in 1996 after further local government reform.

At its final meeting in 1996, Strathclyde Regional Council made an award to the University to fund a centre for Disability Research in the Department of Social Policy and Social Work for four years. The award provided for a Chair in Disability Studies (the Strathclyde Region Chair of Social Policy), postgraduate studentships and a series of annual lectures.
