Shared Learning Group on Involvement

Meeting Held 4 February, 2021

Such an interesting and useful meeting – that was the verdict of members who attended.

Our main discussion topic for discussion was supporting involvement at a strategic level. Thanks to colleagues from CF Trust and Shelter for generously sharing experience, lessons learned and resources.

Thanks also to colleagues (young women and staff) at Young Women’s Trust, who talked  about a project to involve young women in fundraising. Inspirational stuff.

And thanks to our Digital Exclusion Working Group for sharing their learning to date.

Charities Research Involvement Group

Meeting Held 18 March, 2021

Great discussions about PPI at NICE at this meeting – thanks to Mark Rasburn from NICE for joining us.

Last year a start-up called Egality ran a series of focus groups with CRIG members to assess the current relationship between health research supported by member charities and BAME communities. We had a preview of their report, which we’ll be sharing soon. We’re also setting up a working group to progress this issue.
