The application of peer research with populations facing severe and multiple disadvantage

From Revolving Doors Agency and the Lankelly Chase Foundation, this paper will provide you with useful information on including people with lived experience and populations of disadvantage in peer research.

Lead author, Lucy Terry, and her colleagues identify some of the benefits of peer research to be:

  • Research is made more relevant and inclusive by gaining the expertise of people with experience of exclusion 
  • Creates a collaborative, co-productive process
  • The research is strongly political 
  • Promotes personal development and confidence
  • Helps to reverse marginalisation and objectification
  • Fosters community activism
