Practical resources for everyday public involvement in research

While the How To guides here attempt to pin down how we can do exciting work in areas that have not been much developed, there are also a bunch of everyday things that need to be set in place to make public involvement a positive experience for everyone. So below you will find a collection of simple checklists, tools and other resources that I hope will be helpful.  Some items straddle more than one category, so do look over everything rather than stick too rigidly to the subheadings.

Connecting people and opportunities


Engagement and participation techniques
