Public Involvement

Ensuring people with lived experience shape the research 

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 we want to set up a Public Involvement group to help shape and guide the research alongside the research team to ensure we are answering the questions that matter most in the best way.


​We are looking to recruit 8-10 people with experience of being a young father in prison to form the Public Involvement group. You might be recently released from prison or released a while ago so a bit older. As long as you were a young father when in prison, we want to hear from you! 


The group will meet regularly (every 6-8 weeks) at a time/place which suits the group. You will take part in activities and discussions about the study and be asked to offer insights about how the research should progress. We will cover travel costs and provide food, vouchers and training opportunities to support members. ​


This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in research and shape what a programme of support for young fathers in prison could look like. We have some exciting plans for 2023 including interactive workshops, training in media and podcasting, and planning the end of study event. We want to hear from you so get drop us an email ( or call/message (0746 928 4285) ​


We will provide updates on our public involvement work as we progress, so do come back to this page. ​
