This online event will look at some pragmatic mechanisms and opportunities for successfully involving people with lived experience in evidence-informed policy and gain insights from across different research disciplines, policy areas, and geographies.
The discussion will begin with the questions below and will broaden out from there:
· Can we step up work including lived experience in research from practice and local level into national and wider policy?
· How can we bring the voices of those we seek to reach and support into policy without it being tokenistic? How can we do this in a way that is ethical and equitable?
· What skills, capacities and resources do researchers need in order to work with people of diverse backgrounds of lived experience – especially if we want to influence policy?
