Involving our communities
Our Patient and Public Involvement/Engagement (PPIE) work is led by a small team that we call the PPIE Leadership & Support Group (PLSG).
This is made up of two members of ARC staff (Christine Smith & Claire Marsh), and two lay advisors (Joyce Fox & Ruby Bhatti OBE).
The PLSG supports:
- researcher teams in each of the Y&H ARC themes plan, support and report on best practice PPIE in their projects
- communications with the public around the work of the Y&H ARC
- training, development & mentoring opportunities for researchers and the public in the Y&H ARC.
The PLSG in the governance jigsaw, and its links with the wider PPIE world is shown in this diagram:

We will use these pages to share learning and case studies of quality and innovative PPIE as these develop.
