Becoming a User Involvement volunteer

To become a User Involvement volunteer with Scottish Drugs Forum you need to be a stable or former service user.

Places on Scottish Drugs Forum’s National User Involvement Group are limited, while the existence of Scottish Drugs Forum-managed User Involvement groups in local areas are normally dependent on local funding arrangements.

Currently, the User Involvement initiative is operating in East Ayrshire, East Dunbartonshire and Fife.

Our User Involvement Development Officers will undertake assessments of volunteers and successful applicants will then attend peer research training.

If you want more information on becoming a volunteer or are interested in volunteering opportunities please contact Marie Breslin at

Working within User Involvement

The National Practitioner Forum for User Involvement, which has been hosted by Scottish Drugs Forum since 2011, provides a network for practitioners (paid or voluntary) to share best practice, news and ideas on a variety of topics of mutual interest relating to User Involvement.
