Public involvement with LiLaC's research

Public involvement is about members of the public actively influencing the research that is carried out. This can happen when members of the public are consulted about what topics should be researched, sit on a committee that provides advice to a research project, or work as researchers in a project team. People may be interested in getting involved in this way because they have experience as a patient, carer or service user of the issue being researched or if they live or work in a neighbourhood where research is being carried out. Below, are the opportunities for members of the public to get involved in LiLaC's research.
