About the Public Involvement in Education and Research partnership

We are a group of people who have used a wide range of health and social care services, or who are carers for family members or friends. This allows us to bring a unique perspective of these services, having experienced them first-hand, and enables us to enhance the education and subsequent practice of the future workforce in health and social care.

We are involved at various points of each student’s journey, from designing in recruitment activities for our courses and taking part in teaching and learning activities, to getting involved with the assessment of students’ work and contributing to research.
