Jabeer has carried out research on various aspects of Britain's black and minority ethnic communities' experience of social care, including the work of voluntary organisations. For example he led an investigation of black and minority ethnic young disabled people's views and experiences of independent and independent living, funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. With Leandra Box, he investigated the use of family centres, which resulted in the report Family Centred (published in 1998). A number of the messages from this study were used to develop the Sure Start For All guidance document. He has recently completed work on the development of informal support groups for young black disabled people as well as major study of social and support networks of black and minority ethnic older people funded by the ESRC.
Jabeer's work has been used extensively in policy and practice development and the guide to better practice in meeting the housing needs of black and minority ethnic disabled and D/deaf people won the BMESpark award for innovation.
