At Cascade, we are driven by our commitment to make a positive difference for children and families.

We know that in order for our research to make the biggest impact, we need to work closely with children, young people, parents, carers and others with direct experience of services, to ensure that we are addressing the issues that really matter to them.

Our Public Engagement and Involvement team works to involve members of the public in all stages of the research cycle. As part of this, we have four main approaches.
