Our offer

We develop the skills, knowledge and confidence of peer researchers, and staff working with them. We have a comprehensive, interactive and immersive curriculum for peer researchers and ‘trainers’.

Our courses are unique in that they have been co-designed and tested with peer researchers, including young people, and people with English as a second language. We also have specialist sessions, which cover topics such as working in a trauma-informed way, evaluating the impact of peer research, and using specialist digital tools to support remote, Covid-secure peer research.

Bespoke peer researcher training

Training tailored for your organisation or project. This could include training your staff and a team of peer researchers to deliver a new project, undertake fieldwork, conduct analysis or share out findings. We also offer training participatory research and creative methods.
