Our 'Voice' is the 'Tool'- The Seldom Heard Voices Forum

The Applied Research Collaboration North West Coast (ARC NWC) consists of health and social care providers, NHS commissioners, local authorities, universities, public advisers, the Innovation Agency (Academic Health Science Network), working together to learn more about health inequalities, and overcome the barriers around translating discoveries in health research into practice which improves lives.

Last Monday, we participate in the forum organised by ARC NWC. The Seldom Heard Voices forum aim was to focus on specific aspects and issues faced by seldom heard groups. The forum gave our Roma Community Development Worker, together with other professionals and community members, the opportunity to present issues faced by the GRT group. The vision of this forums are 'to improve health, equality and applied health research through the voice of the population.'
