Table 3 Recommendations to embed greater community involvement in future research

From: Supporting and enabling health research in a local authority (SERLA): an exploratory study

• Harness existing community knowledge by building relationships with individuals and NGOs already working in the community
• Consider communities as ‘under-represented’ rather than ‘hard to reach’ to counteract systemic barriers. Explore incentives for involvement
• Ensure PPI involvement in public health and social care research is presented in relevant and meaningful ways to reflect individuals’ lived experiences
• Explore inclusive modes of involvement, with appropriate training and feedback on involvement
