We are excited to launch a new format for our Community Conversation Reports. Our new Reports provide an engaging run down of each Community Conversation which we’ve held throughout the year.
Each Report outlines:
- Who the Consumer and Community Health Research Network are
- What a Community Conversation is
- The team involved
- What the Community Conversation was about
- The report preamble
- A break down of each question or theme discussed with attendees
- Attendee feedback
- How you can stay in touch
Please find Reports for the first three Community Conversations that we held in 2019 below:

A wide range of road safety issues were raised by community members. Attendees were also canvassed for their opinions on solutions to the problems outlined in the session, as well as who might be good groups or organisations to approach to effect these changes.
