The UCPRG has been supporting the School’s activities since 2009.

Up to 10 people will be recruited as members of the Group, who will help to plan and shape public involvement in NIHR SSCR, develop and review the School’s public involvement strategy and support the School with commissioning research.

We are looking for members from a wide range of backgrounds with a variety of experiences of adult social care services in England.
