Resources for Engaged

REACH Logo Circle Text 1

These resources, templates and models have been compiled as part of the REACH project, funded by the Integrated Care Systems (ICS) Research Engagement Network (REN) Programme, co-produced in partnership with Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations across Worcestershire.

The aim is to widen engagement in health and care research across the region, to better understand and ultimately reduce health inequalities.

We want to encourage conversations about health research in all our communities and support better links between community and  research.
