SRA North

SRA North is made up of SRA members from the North of England. We meet regularly to plan events and catch up with what’s going on in the SRA and elsewhere in social research. SRA North provides networking events, seminars and other opportunities for professional development for people engaged in social research, in any capacity and across a range of organisations, in the north of England. 


SRA North Committee

The current SRA North commitee is formed of researchers from a range of sectors and organisations. We meet roughly once a quarter to arrange events. We are always happy to welcome new members to the committee, and so if you are interested in getting involved do get in touch. We are particularly looking for any researchers in the North East to help us broaden our committee membership. We also welcome any ideas and suggestions for events or seminars you'd like to see. 


Next SRA North event:

'Participate now! How participatory approaches can transform the researcher-participant relationship' 
Wednesday 4 December 2019, 6.00pm, Leeds

Join SRA North for a free evening seminar focusing on participatory approaches to social research. Speakers from two collaborative research projects will be discussing the insights they have gained from involving people with lived experience as partners in the research process.

The speakers will include  James Duggan from Manchester Metropolitan University presenting on the Loneliness Connects Us project and how participatory approaches were used to develop new ways of thinking and talking about youth loneliness.  And Roger Newton and Rowena Hay focussing on Better Births - a participatory action research project engaging women and their families to improve maternity services across England.will discuss methods as well as application, and the evening should be of interest to researchers working across a range of sectors.

The evening will be chaired by Laura Byrne from Boxclever and Jenny Reed from the British Red Cross.
