Connecting Communities – People Enabling Change is a 6-month pilot study funded by the United Kingdom Research Institute (UKRI) to set up a Community Research Network. The purpose of this is to gather community wisdom and understand the wider determinants of health in the region. We are working in partnership with Cumbria CVS, Groundwork Cumbria and NE, University of Cumbria, All Together Communities, Anti Racist Cumbria, Cumbria Family Support, Open Source Arts, People First.
‘What makes us healthy?’
We want to purposefully involve people who don’t usually have their experiences reflected in research, identify and invite them into the core of this work.
The project is also part of CDEC’s work on creating a culture of collaboration and deep partnership between organisations in Cumbria with Art of Hosting approach at the centre in terms of creating spaces for dialogue and co-operation.
