Adults with experience of support services sought to join a research study

The University of Bristol are looking for people who would like to join the ConnectED research study, either as Experts by Experience, or as a member of a Service User and Carer Advisory Group. The ConnectED study aims to help decision-makers in Adult Social Care make better decisions by developing their ability to use research.

If you have received services from Adult Social Care, or supported somebody else who has, they would like to hear from you. They are looking for people to join a pool of experts by experience covering all aspects of adult social care and up to 12 people to serve on the Service User and Carer Advisory Group (SUCAG) throughout the 3.5 years of the ConnectED project.

You can find more information about the study and how to get involved in the attached documents. If you have any questions about the study, you can contact Jon Symonds in the School for Policy Studies on
