The PSE: UK research team has collaborated with community groups, pressure groups, organisations and networks of people working on the frontline of poverty across the UK.
In Northern Ireland, PSE team members from Queen's University, Belfast, and The Open Unviersity were closely involved in a project called Communities in Action, which worked with community groups from some of Northern Ireland’s most disadvantaged areas. This project drew on the PSE national surveys to help communities research what is happening in their own area and to track the impact of the economic recession and changes to the benefits system and public service.
In the North East of England, the PSE team worked closely with networks of community practitioners and researchers, to exchange information and resources. The team have also linked up with community participatory research projects in Scotland.
