She became Deputy Director  in 1986 and was appointed to a Personal Chair in Social Policy in 1990. Her research interests included policy and the delivery of services and benefits to disabled people and their family carers; resource allocation, outcomes and the cash and care mix in social care; gender issues in social and health care; and the utilisation of research findings by policy makers and professionals.

Sally Baldwin was a member of the NHS R&D Commissioning Panel for Research Awards in Primary Care. She was also chair of the Association of the Directors of Research centres in the Social Sciences (ARCISS), was a Trustee of the Family Fund Trust, and a Non-Executive Director of York NHS Trust.
