Remit of the group
An independent group of service users and carers working with De Montfort University SUCRAN works in all stages of the research process to design & conduct research and analyse findings. Peer interviewing produces robust evidence based research and our aim is to influence service improvement from the outcomes of our research.
Some research is driven by the group, some is commissioned by other organisations or we can provide the PPI element for an existing piece of research.
Frequency of meetings
Steering group meets every 4 to 6 weeks and we hold monthly training workshops open to all our researchers. Work is shared between retained pool of 30 service users and carers.
Who can consult the group?
Any researchers, commissioners and service providers.
