Our research experience

Throughout our thirty years of operation, we’ve managed a number of research projects backed by a variety of funders, and we were most recently commissioned by the National Lottery to conduct research into the relationships between self help groups and practitioners.

The most recent research project we have been involved with is ESTEEM. The ESTEEM (Effective Support for Self Help/ Mutual aid groups) study aimed to produce evidence-based guidelines for health and social care practitioners on how they can provide the best support for local self help groups.

The project is a partnership between Self Help Nottingham, Anglia Ruskin University and The University of Nottingham.
