HRA Community Insight Group

Last updated on 28 Oct 2021

We have around 1,000 dedicated and committed people who give their time to support the work of the HRA. They make up our Research Ethics Committees (REC), Confidentiality Advisory Group (CAG) and are part of our Public Involvement Network (PIN).

Their efforts support health and social care research and make an invaluable contribution both to our work and to research participants.

These people are key to the HRA’s achievements and we value the important work they do. We want them to feel part of the HRA community and enjoy working with us. To help support this we have created a new Community Insight Group, which is made up of members of different RECs, CAG and PIN.

The group meets regularly to share feedback on their experiences of working with the HRA and discuss ideas for how we can improve. We will also share information about what the group is discussing so the wider HRA community can contribute their thoughts and ideas. The ideas we discuss will inform how we work to improve the experience of being part of the HRA community.

In March 2021, we carried out a survey to better understand the experiences of REC, CAG and PIN members and this is informing the topics the HRA Community Insight Group is discussing. We will be doing another survey in the coming months.

You can read more about the Community Insight Group on its dedicated page.
