Welcome

Our aim is to support consumers, community members and researchers to work together in partnership to make decisions about research priorities, policies and practice.

The Consumer and Community Participation Program is a joint initiative of The University of Western Australia's School of Population Health and Telethon Kids Institute.

Involvingpeopleinresearch.org.au is the website for the joint Consumer and Community Participation Program. Involving people in research is also known as consumer and community participation in health research.
