Setting Priorities for Research

Are you interested in being part of a research priority setting exercise?

In an effort to identify the top 10 research questions on social and emotional development that need answering within the 0-5 sector, we are developing a funding application to undertake the James Lind Alliance (JLA) approach.

This approach, recognised by the National Institute of Health and Social Care Research, is designed to ensure that the voices of patients, practitioners and the public are prioritised, informing what is critical in their care. While a significant portion of the JLA process requires academic input, it’s essential to involve these stakeholders directly.

As part of the Supporting Early Minds Research Network, we aim to co-lead or facilitate this crucial work. Our goal is to secure additional research funding for the sector, thus contributing to the ongoing development of our evidence base.

We are interested in partnering with as many services and organisations as possible that share our commitment to this cause to help develop the funding application for this project.

Please get in touch if you are interested in discussing this project further: supportingearlyminds@spi.ox.ac.uk.
