Peer researchers

Our research team consists of full time university researchers, and part time peer researchers (also known as community researchers). Peer researchers are people who guide and conduct research based on their life experience of the topic being studied. Peer researcher bring their experience and viewpoints around being a person from a racially minoritised community, social networks, and wellbeing, to guide and jointly produce key recommendations based on the project’s findings. We involved peer researchers from the beginning of the study, to incorporate their expertise and lived experience in every aspect of the CONNECT study. This project seeks to amplify the voice of people from local communities.
