Event summary

Peer research is a participatory research method in which people with lived experience of the issues involved take part in directing and conducting the research.

Peer research enables practitioners and community members to become actively involved in research to directly affect the outcomes. They add an ‘authentic’ voice to research and foster closer collaborations between academics and those impacted by the research findings.

This in-person event will explore what we can learn from current peer research practices in the North East and North Cumbria and how can we support more people to get involved in peer research.

What will I gain from this?

This event, which will be jointly delivered by Fuse, the Centre for Translational Research in Public Health and the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) North East and North Cumbria (NENC), will showcase examples of good practice of peer research within our region.

Together we will share resources, identify key ingredients and gaps, and explore how we could address these gaps. At the event, we will launch a Community of Practice for peer researchers and those interested in peer research to take forward action points from the event.

Who is it for?
Anyone and everyone who is interested in peer research from a public health perspective, including academic researchers, health and care professionals, community and voluntary sector staff and community members.
