Principles of engagement

Principles of engagement PDF

Egality and our Advisory Board co-developed these principles. They are a guide to any organisation working with community organisations to conduct health research.  The principles set out best practice to ensure fair and effective collaboration between community organisations and the health and life science sector.  Community organisations in our network have placed their logos on this document as a symbol of their support.
