One of the core values of the Salvesen Mindroom Research Centre is “working in partnership with practitioners, young people, and families”. We are fortunate to have active links with organisations in the public and third sector, with policy-makers, and with individuals with an interest in our work.
Our research ethos recognises the importance of lived, as well as professional experience. For this reason we are developing a Stakeholder Reference Group who will meet annually to provide commentary on our research from a personal perspective. The group will comprise people with learning difficulties, including teachers, clinicians and parents. Beyond this group, we are always happy to hear from people who would like to join our mailing list, in order to hear occasional updates about our work, as well as invitations to Salvesen Mindroom Research Centre events.
