Are you part of a voluntary, community or social enterprise organisation linked to health and wellbeing in Worcestershire? Are you interested in finding ways to use community voice to influence policy? Are you wondering how health and social care research can impact and improve practice?

So are we!

REACH Worcestershire (a VCSE Worcestershire Alliance initiative) are a collective of organisations working in partnership with The Research and Development Team at Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust to explore these very issues.

Welcome to this inaugural meeting to discuss and define the structure, purpose and direction of the Research Engagement and Community Health steering group.

The project, led by Worcestershire VCSE Alliance aims to enhance the research literacy and evaluation skills of the Worcestershire Wellbeing Roles Network workforce. This will enable them to initiate informed discussions about health research and better represent their communities. They will serve as channels for community feedback on issues related to improving research access, relevant topics, and engagement.
