How you can get involved

Our Public Partner Network

The Public Partner Network is for members of the public involved in our research to connect with each other. This offers people the opportunity to find out what is happening across the school and to support each other. The network helps advise us, particularly in our public involvement and engagement activities, allowing us to improve in these areas. If you are a member of the public involved in SPHR research or would like to be involved in SPHR research you can join our Public Partner Network here.
