The seminar
In 2016, Local Trust commissioned the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) to look at how community groups are working with health agencies to improve health and wellbeing in their local areas. In this seminar Katie Turner (Senior Researcher, IVAR) and Louise Forshaw (Big Local Wargrave) discuss the use of participatory methods in this project, what the researchers and the community groups did, and what was learnt.

The presenters will also invite participants to reflect on and explore some of the questions that the research raised. For example:

• When and where is participatory action research the ‘right’ approach?
• How can it meet the needs of a diverse range of research participants?
• How does it support participants to take practical action and achieve change?

This seminar is hosted by our colleagues at the Social Research Association. To register your free place, please go to the SRA website.
