Commmunity-led action research is a way of doing research where the issue to be researched, the way the research is carried out, and how the research results are used is decided by the community.

This makes community-led action research different from traditional research which tends to be conducted on the community by researchers from outside the community.

What we do

SCDC has strongly supported community-led action research for many years. We have developed resources to help people to carry out community-led action research, and have supported many community groups and organisations to use these resources in carrying out their own research.
