Stakeholder and Experts by Experience Voices In Education and Research
Collaboration, Co Production and Co Design
Inviting all public, stakeholders and experts by experience to influence and shape education and research
Can you, or someone you know, use your lived experience to help make our health and social care programmes better?
In the School of Medical and Health Sciences we currently have a small number of individuals who are making a large contribution to our programmes by sharing their experiences of health and social care. People give whatever they feel able to within our programmes. Whatever they feel passionate about. We celebrate every contribution and consider each and every contact, whether it's behind the scenes or through direct contact with students, as potentially life changing.
We want to expand this group and open up more opportunities for people to join our current volunteers. There are lots of ways you can use your lived experience as a service user or carer to make a real difference to our students as they look ahead to future careers in health or social care.
Below are some comments from current contributors:
‘I feel genuinely valued, listened to constantly with a caring, gentle humane quality."
"For me personally I am empowered given confidence but no pressure vibe. Feel like that more than anyone or other group I have worked with feel like a warrior queen!’
