Feedback from Judges

The methodology used by this team is innovative and still being developed. Working with a hard to reach group who have had difficulty in ‘finding a voice’ they have used a multi-dimensional approach and have been successful in creating a partnership network which is not only productive in research terms but fits with the vision of the kind of groups the NHS would like to work with.
