Peer Research in the UK

We’re delighted to be sharing with you a new report – Peer Research in the UK – which takes an in-depth look at the use of peer research in the UK today. It aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to the methodology and advocate for its value as a legitimate and insightful research approach, with the potential to empower peer researchers. Within the report, you’ll be able to find:

  • The definition of peer research as a methodology and a discussion of its many advantages
  • A desk review of 48 peer research projects conducted in the UK over the last five years
  • The challenges and questions practitioners of peer research need to address in order to move the methodology forward
  • The current gaps in the application of peer research and suggestions of future directions for the methodology
