Engagement Coordinator

Nicola Standen | Engagement Coordinator

Nicola Standen is Healthwatch Solihull’s Engagement Coordinator.  Over the previous 19 years Nicola has been actively involved in social research, primarily with a focus on health and social care inequalities. During this time she has held a number of research posts within the academic, statutory and voluntary and community sectors and has gained experience of working on a variety of diverse commissioned research projects. 

Nicola has a particular interest in participatory research and engaging with groups often referred to as vulnerable or marginalised and has recently led on an NHS Trust research programme to actively engage users of mental health services in research related activity. She also has practical experience of working alongside service users and community groups and organisations in the design, development and undertaking of research. This includes recent experience of working in partnership with users of mental health services to develop a research study exploring the notion of quality in mental health service provision and co-facilitating focus groups with ‘peer’ researchers.  As part of this work Nicola has worked with service user groups and community organisations to identify support needs and has provided training and mentoring to ‘peer’ researchers to enable their meaningful engagement and participation in research.
