Join an NIHR committee and shape the future of our research
The National Institute for Health and Care Research is inviting members of the public to join one of their national and regional committees who are responsible for making funding recommendations in health and social care research. Why not give it a go?
“The committees play an important role in helping us deliver our mission to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research. Through funding by the Department of Health and Social Care, the NIHR enables and delivers world-leading health and social care research that improves people’s health and wellbeing, and promotes economic growth.
We are looking for people who have a broad interest in health, social care and actions to improve public health and address health inequalities.
You do not need to have a scientific background to help us shape research! We are looking for people who are able to use their own experiences to improve the research we wish to fund.
The NIHR is committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in all areas of our work. We recognise public contributors may encounter barriers to involvement. We will take steps to ensure we are as accessible and inclusive as possible. We want to increase the diversity of our public contributors and the voices heard in research, and are trying to take positive steps to improve representation in our committees.
