2. To promote the development of research, policy and practice that is genuinely participatory and methodologically and ethically inspiring.

3. To advance knowledge and dialogue on innovative research and practice – locally, nationally and globally.

4. To encourage the dissemination of knowledge and practice through creative techniques which reach out to a variety of audiences.

5. To disseminate project findings in creative ways to those that matter most – that is the communities who are at the heart of project work.

6. To share a collection of resources that showcases innovation in research and practice.
