Kidney Research UK: Volunteer peer educators

By establishing a volunteer peer educator scheme, this project is hoping to increase research engagement and involvement from ethnic minority and other under-served populations.

  • Previous research has highlighted that certain communities are underrepresented in kidney-related research and that people from those communities are significantly more likely to progress to end-stage kidney disease.
  • Target communities for this project include:
    • socially deprived people of any ethnicity living in Salford
    • Pakistani communities in Oldham
    • Bengali communities in Rochdale.

This project is a collaboration between Kidney Research UK, Research for the Future, and the renal department at Salford Care Organisation (part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust)
