CARDI recently published a guide for the community and voluntary sector about getting involved in ageing research. The guide produced by Dr Brendan Murtagh, Queen's University Belfast and commissioned by CARDI builds on previous research on user involvement in ageing research (2014). The publication provides useful information on key issues relating to participating or carrying out research projects for age sector organisations.

Ageing research flourishes when the research community connects with the relevant players from government, voluntary and community sector, business and older people themselves. As a result many funders of research and researchers themselves are recognising the benefits of engaging with service users. This research, carried out by Dr Brendan Murtagh, QUB on behalf of CARDI funded by OFMDFM (NI), reviews the nature of user involvement in research and how this can be strengthened to improve the quality of age research in Ireland, North and South.
