Welcome to the Consumer and Community Involvement (CCI) Program

Formerly known as the Consumer and Community Health Research Network (CCHRN) the CCI Program works with our universities, health and medical research institutes, health service providers and Non-Government Organisations to bring together consumers and people with lived experience and connect them with health and medical researchers.


Your Voice Counts

Our Vision is improving lives by ensuring the community’s voice is heard and understood in health research

Our Mission is enabling consumer and community involvement in health research by supporting and connecting community with researchers, partners and policy makers

Our Values:

  • Inclusion
  • Trust, Respect, Support and Value each other and those we work with
  • Working as a Team
  • Continuing to be Relevant and Sustainable

so we can work towards Making a Difference

As we’re all aware the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is circulating in the Australian population. We’re closely monitoring the situation and working on alternative ways that we can continue to involve you during the next couple of months.

In order to demonstrate our responsibility in minimising the spread of COVID-19, the Consumer and Community Involvement Program (CCI Program) has taken proactive steps to move to remote working. In the interests of health and safety of CCI Program staff, consumers, community members and researchers, for the foreseeable future we are moving to online meetings, community involvement and engagement so that we can keep everyone safe.

Please view Community Involvement in COVID-19 Research for more information.

If you have any questions please get in touch.
