Thanks for your post. The research team are keen to encourage our volunteers and research supporters to take up the baton and champion research whether it be within a local group or as a group of ‘research enthusiasts’ through our research support network and alongside regional teams. I know that in some regions this is working particularly well.
It’s great that Richard Brown, will be championing this idea at the Stockton event as well as discussing the various other ways to ‘dip your toe’ into research for those who are new to this area of our work.
If there are others ‘research enthusiasts’ across the UK who are would be interested in getting in touch with those with a similar interest, please do contact us either, via the forum or by emailing the research team at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We’re very happy to put those interested and based in the same region in touch and support them in the role they’d like to play in regional research through the research support network.
