From 1 April 2019, public involvement opportunities have been advertised in a clearer and more informative way so you can easily decide which opportunity is best for you. You can see, at a glance, which opportunities provide payment for out of pocket expenses and which ones offer payment for time.

Involvement opportunities have been sorted into red, blue and green categories. We have developed guidance to help you decide which category of opportunity is best suited to your requirements and experience. 

This will not affect any opportunities advertised before 1 April 2019.

A simple printable A4 guide to the three different types of categories (red, blue and green) can be found here.
