Co-producing our study with public involvement is a core part of our process. We believe research should be inclusive and draw on all forms of knowledge and expertise. That is why our research is highly collaborative where we have partnered with the Race Equality Foundation and people with lived experience.
Throughout the research, we will also consult with our 'Public Involvement group' which consists of 8 people with lived experience of imprisonment. They will help shape and guide the research to ensure we are answering the questions that matter most.
We want to make sure our approach is not just collaborative but benefits all those involved. We provide payment, support and training for those involved in our public involvement work to ensure our study is positive and has impact for those involved.
We will provide updates on our public involvement work as we progress.
