Closing date: Friday 1 November

For: People who have experienced trauma. You don’t need to have any expertise of research, just a willingness to share your views within a group of 10-12 people.  You won’t be asked to discuss your own experience of trauma.

What: A team of researchers at the University of Bristol are looking for people who have experienced trauma to help advise them with their study. This might be violence, abuse, neglect, loss, disaster, war or any other emotionally harmful experiences. The study is a review of literature about what approaches to healthcare are safe and acceptable for people with lived experiences of trauma.

When: There will be an initial meeting in central Bristol to ask for your opinion on some aspects of the study. The meeting will last no longer than two hours. There may be further future meetings and you may occasionally be asked to review things like plain English summary of the study findings.

Payment: Attendees will be paid £21.57 per hour and reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.

For more information: If you are interested in helping, please email trauma-informed-study@bristol.ac.uk before 1 November.
