Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) has pioneered and developed peer research as a key part of its user involvement activity. Peer Research allows the voices and experiences of people who have experienced or are experiencing problem substance use to be heard where decisions are being made.
SDF is funded by North Lanarkshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership (NL ADP) to provide independent peer evaluations in services across North Lanarkshire.
We are looking to recruit a User Involvement Development Officer whose primary focus is to recruit, train, support and sustain a team of peer researcher volunteers.
The Development Officer will work with and support volunteers to undertake both quantitative and qualitative research into aspects of service provision within the addiction field.
SDF offer staff excellent terms and conditions. This post is offered on a 35hr working week, with flexi time, pension and generous annual leave and public holidays.
For an informal conversation about any aspect of the role please contact: Jason Wallace, 0141 221 1175.
