Become an Associate
CLAHRC-NDL brings together service users and carers, commissioners, health and social care providers, managers and researchers to make a real and lasting difference to health and social care in the region.
This is an opportunity to shape future health and social care in the region. Anyone with an interest in our work is invited to become a CLAHRC Associate, including people using services, the public, researchers and clinical staff. We would like to learn from your experiences of success and failure, and hear your views on what research is needed in the future. Networks of CLAHRC Associates will actively support putting current and future research into practice.
Who can get involved?
To successfully translate our research into health and social care improvements we need to work with a variety
of individuals, groups and organisations. To develop this collaborative working process we created Associate membership and invite you to join – to help us shape the future of health and social care together.
An Associate can be anyone with an interest in CLAHRC-NDL; that could be our aims (putting research
into practice), our partner organisations, or applied health research in general. You can have any level of
knowledge, understanding or experience, be of any profession or none, be a service user, patient or carer, or
you may know nothing at all and just want to know more.

You can contribute to our work in a number of valuable ways. We value any level of involvement, from
simply showing your support through your membership to actively implementing health and social care
improvements. Other possible contributions include:
Spreading knowledge, understanding and interest in the CLAHRC-NDL by learning more yourself;
Developing a network of contacts around the CLAHRC-NDL by making others aware and inviting them to
become Associates too;
Providing us with feedback and information based on your own expertise and experience – helping us learn
from you; and
Sharing our research with others to promote evidence-based service improvement.
You are free to choose the level of involvement which best suits you, and to change this at any time.
