Involving People in Research

We advise researchers, consumers and community members on the how and why of implementing consumer and community involvement.

Your Voice Counts

We bring together consumers, community members and researchers to make decisions about health research priorities, policy and practice.

We support consumer and community involvement to become standard practice in health research.

We promote the community ‘voice’ in health research through our services, resources, events and training programs.
