We are recruiting volunteers with lived experience of substance use in Tayside!

Do you have a lived experience of substance use and want to use this experience to help others?

Scottish Drugs Forum are looking for people with lived experience of substance use in Tayside to become peer research volunteers for an exciting project looking at hepatitis-C treatment with people who use substances. The project will involve interviewing people who have been through the treatment and finding out what their experience has been.

SDF peer researchers are involved in every step of the research, from designing the research tools, collecting data, analysing data, to reporting on the findings to decision makers.

Full training and support are provided to give you the skills and confidence needed to carry out the research role and we provide travel and lunch expenses.

Whether you are looking to build up your skills, confidence or just meet new friends, being an SDF Peer Researcher is a fantastic opportunity and will give you memories to last a lifetime!

If this sounds like something you or someone you know would be interested in, please contact Alex Murray, SDF’s User Involvement Officer for Tayside on 07741 855 517 or email alexm@sdf.org.uk
