Public involvement

Communities in Control study

CiC Resident network


A Resident Network supports public involvement in the Communities in Control study.  We hope that by working with the public and practitioners to design the research and disseminate our findings, this will mean that the research can be of wider benefit for Big Local areas, communities and public health practitioners.

Watch the videos or read the case studies to learn about the experiences of residents and researchers involved with the Communities in Control study.
