The COREN Needs You!

The Community Research and Engagement Network (COREN) is now working with volunteers and community organisations around the North West to find out how all those involved in health research can work together. Following its successful work as part of the Neighbourhood Resilience Programme, the ‘refreshed’ COREN is now involving organisations from the VCFSE sector and community groups in applied health research and evaluation.

To improve this work, we want to know what matters to people in the region, and make sure they are involved in developing and creating research which can really help change people’s lives.

We know there is already a huge amount of research and evaluation work being carried out right across the area by VCFSE organisations large and small and community groups. To make best use of this, and also understand how we can help communities and organisations get involved in more research, we want to hear from you about your organisation and your community and any work you are already doing.

We have created a short survey to find out what research and evaluation is already happening and what the COREN can offer to help with that work. The survey shouldn’t take long and we really appreciate any help you can offer.

The survey can be found here.

The survey will be closing at the end of April 2022, so please get your answers in asap!

More information about the COREN, its work, and how you can get involved will be coming out soon.

Do get in touch with any questions – Claire Selby, Stakeholder and Engagement Manager, c.selby@lancaster.ac.uk –  or to find out how to get involved.
