Community-Based Research Toolkit: Resources and Tools for Doing Research with Community for Social Change
The tools, templates and resources in this toolkit were compiled and developed by the community-based research team at Access Alliance based on half a decade of implementing community-based research projects. This toolkit is designed for people and institutions interested in doing research using community-based research principles, and contains over 70 ready to use tools and templates and numerous best practices recommendations.
This guide lays out ethical principles and guidelines for community-based participatory research. This guide focuses on the lessons learned by people working intensively in this area, and provides a useful resource for anyone interested in developing more participatory approaches to their research.
This document aims to share our knowledge around research ethics, to empower us in our work, and to reduce the potential harms that participation in research/evaluation has had on some impoverished and/or criminalized client populations. These guidelines are intended for groups that work with recipient populations that are impoverished, criminalized or otherwise socially marginalized or isolated.
The goal of this toolkit is to help develop a basic understanding of community-based participatory research concepts and methodologies, such that community members can participate meaningfully in the different phases of the research process (including planning, data collection, data analysis, dissemination of findings, and action) in their community.
This guide covers the core beliefs and values for helping survivors with disabilities plan for safety, tips on how and when to use a safety plan for a variety of situations experienced by a survivor, and, a safety plan template. The act of planning for safety helps survivors think through possible dangers in a variety of situations and have a plan in mind about what to do when their physical and/or emotional safety is threatened.
