Our public engagement programme aims to empower people with neurological and psychiatric conditions to contribute to, and influence, neuroscience research.

We embed our researchers in a culture where they can develop the skills and experience to readily engage public groups in the evolution of neuroscience. To support this, we are creating platforms to build relationships with and engage targeted audiences that are traditionally under-represented in neuroscience.


Our aims:

Develop a culture where public engagement is embedded into all research programs, producing world-leading researchers with the skills and experience to readily engage with diverse communities

Create a substantial network of empowered people with neurological and psychiatric conditions so they can meaningfully contribute to the research

Establish ongoing relationships with a diversity of communities across the UK that are traditionally under-served in neuroscience
