Public Health Wales are looking for two Patient and Public Involvement members for a research project briefly outlined below:
Public Health Wales funded by the Health Foundation (Covid-19 research funding) is looking to recruit 2 Patient and Public (PPI) members of the steering group which would involve attending three (remote/virtual) meetings across the 12 month period (first one in January, second in June/July and last one in December), and it would be in an advisory capacity. This research project is a partnership between Public Health Wales WCVA, What Works Wellbeing and the University of Bristol to understand the role of community-led action as a protective factor against widening health inequalities during, and in recovery from COVID-19.
In particular the two PPI members would:
- Add their input and insights to help shape the work going forward and sense-check it.
- Have a regular opportunity to coproduce input in each step of the research cycle – from design to dissemination.
- Help to actively coproduce the research methods that we will use, by offering insights into what is actually happening on the ground.
– Aged 18 years or above.
– Living and/or working in Wales.
– Basic IT skills.
– Experience in using Microsoft Teams basic features (or Zoom / Skype if needed).
– Grassroots volunteer; informal or formal volunteer; worker in the third sector; general member of the public.
Each meeting will last approximately 2.5 hours, plus approximately an extra 30 min to read the agenda/briefing information before each meeting.
Therefore, the two PPI will be asked to commit to a total of 9 to 10 hours over the 12 months. There is the opportunity for some remuneration, within the research budget.

The closing date for participants is 13th January.
