About our training
We can work alongside your charity or voluntary sector organisation to help you understand the challenges you face and how to learn from them. We also offer bookable training courses for individuals, see below for more information.
We have a ten-year history of prioritising the voices of people with lived experience of mental health issues and of social and economic disadvantage.
Our specialist expertise will help you hear and understand those voices. Our insight can help inform the direction of your projects and the strategy of your organisation through understanding the strengths and challenges of your processes.
We are also able to host events and workshops to help develop collaborative recommendations.
Want to develop your understanding of peer research or public involvement in research? Interested in working with young people to shape your research ideas and co-deliver research work with you?
We provide training on how to approach peer research, public involvement, co-production and more. Our training is delivered interactively via Zoom.
We can also provide mentoring and support, including reflective practice sessions for individuals – get in touch to find out more.

Spring 2024 Training
Our new three-session online training course is now open for booking. Aimed at researchers in any field looking to ensure good quality involvement, the course focuses on how to ensure good quality involvement that avoids tokenism and genuinely embeds lived experience knowledge into research projects.
We share our experience across a range of PPI models, and provide interactive spaces so you can ask
questions, get advice for your project and learn from people with professional and lived experience as both facilitators and members of PPI teams.
Over three sessions we work with a group of up to 10 researchers to cover:
- What is PPI?
- Models for PPI in research
- Running good PPI groups and working with young people
- Inclusivity in PPI
When: Session 1: 12th Apr; Session 2: 26th Apr; Session 3: 10th May
Cost: Earlybird £550 (book by 6th Mar); £600 (from 7th Mar) for three 2.5 hour sessions plus course materials
