Event description

Description

The best research brings about change.

Many communities are facing hardship and pressures, feeling ‘left-behind’ or not listened to. Community research can illuminate the issues communities face, give communities a voice and lead to positive change.

Uncover > Action is a new conference from Local Trust and ARVAC (Association for Research in the Voluntary and Community Sector) focusing on community research that has made a difference to people’s lives. It will bring together exciting examples of research made with and in communities and show how impact can last beyond a final report.

The conference will aim to:

  • Provide insight into what communities care about today
  • Give a platform to overlooked and unheard voices
  • Share research that has led to change in policy and practice, locally or nationally

The conference will feature presentations from Hetan Shah (Executive director at the Royal Statistical Society), Linden West (professor, author and researcher with Canterbury Christchurch university) and Mandy Wilson (community development practitioner, researcher and evaluator).

There will also be a mixture of breakout sessions, display and films, covering topics such as health, supporting communities in places, power, community business, community action and community research methods (amongst others).

Please note that places are limited to ensure a range of perspectives and voices on the day. There is a waiting list for the conference, so please do let us know if you are no longer able to attend.
