Fuse values public involvement and engagement as a vital part of our mission to get high quality research into the real world to improve people's health.
The public voice influences our work by helping us to prioritise our areas of research, how we deliver our research, how we interpret our results and how we share our findings.
We welcome members of the public, service users, carers, patients, families and local communities to get involved in our research activities. You don’t need any specific knowledge or previous experience, just an interest in public health research and some time to commit to sharing your thoughts and ideas with us.
To join the Fuse network and help make a difference to people's health, please register your interest by completing this short form so that we can let you know about any relevant opportunities to engage with Fuse.
Our Public Involvement and Engagement Committee works to embed public and community engagement in Fuse research. Find out more about the committee here.
Below are examples of Fuse work involving public involvement and engagement.
