Join an advisory committee
We involve members of the public in the work of decision making committees.
This is how a former public member described their role:
"My role on the committee was to provide a patient and public perspective when evaluating research proposals for funding. PPI members have valuable experiences and perspectives that complement those of healthcare professionals, hence ensuring delivery of public benefit. I was treated as an equal and integral part of the committee and my contributions were respected." Former public member
What is it like to be a public member?
