Dear all,

The University of Birmingham is undertaking a research project about social care services. This project wants to find out what people think about local care services and if they feel they can access the care services that they want – and how local authorities can help make this happen.

To do this they’ll be working with co-researchers who will be paid to interview people alongside researchers from the University of Birmingham. In particular, they are looking to work with people who have had experience of accessing social care services, or who have cared for someone who has accessed social care services. Co-researchers can bring their own experiences to the research and so can help the study team understand the real issues and so they’re interested in hearing from people who have a range of experiences .

What will they be doing?

They’ll be carrying out approximately 20 interviews with people who access care services in Southwark and they’re looking to recruit some co-researchers who will be able to accompany the researchers to the interviews. The interviews will take place in the autumn.

Attached is a document giving some more information about the role of co-researcher about the project

…and also a brief application form in .pdf format for printing if you are interested in the role.

…and here it is in .doc format for easy filling in and e-mailing.

It would be helpful if any expressions of interest or application forms could be received by 31 August 2018.

If you would like to express interest in becoming a co-researcher on the project, or require any further information, please email Emily Burn, or call 0121 414 3011.
