Citizen Leadership

People who access health and social care services and local communities must be at the heart of our planning for future services.

This theme explores how people can be effectively supported in undertaking such roles. It also considers the work of those tasked with improving such engagement within organisations and research teams.

As the Centre’s work grows, this theme will be developed throughout 2019/2020.  

If you have expertise in this area and would like to contribute to the Centre’s work on citizen Leadership, please get in contact with us by emailing
