What is public involvement in research?
Public involvement in research is research done ‘with’ or ‘by’ members of the public rather than ‘to’, ‘about’ or ‘for’ them (NIHR INVOLVE).
NIHR INVOLVE have produced some information for people what want to get involved in research. You can find our more here.
Statement on Diversity and Inclusion
We adopt the NIHR Statement on Diversity and Inclusion:
The promotion of diversity and inclusion is the responsibility of all members of our community. It is expected that we will all contribute to ensuring that INVOLVE continues to be a safe, welcoming and productive environment, where there is equality of opportunity, fostered in an environment of mutual respect and dignity.
The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, recognising and appreciating our differences and commonalities.
We understand that simply having diversity in our work force is not enough; we must create an inclusive environment for all across the research system.
We value the uniqueness and talents, beliefs, backgrounds, capabilities and ways of working of all individuals, joined in a common endeavour, to create a culture of belonging.
