Public Involvement Standards moves on to testing phase

By the end of March 2018, the Public Involvement Standards Development Partnership will publish a revised version of the standards that responds to the feedback gathered from a consultation carried out in 2017. From April 2018 to April 2019, the next stage in developing the standards is to make sure that they work in practice.

They are looking for people, groups, teams and organisations that want to get involved in:

  • Putting the standards to practical use in their own working environment
  • Sharing what they learn

They plan to work directly with a small number (maximum 10) test bed projects and indirectly with as many people, groups, teams and organisations that want to get involved. Find out more info.
