Why be involved in research?

Taking part in research means different things to different people.  It can be a chance to share your experiences and views about something that matters to you or that you feel is not well understood.  It can also be a chance to be part of changing how things work or improving services.  Other people find it interesting to be see research ‘works’ in practice.  There are lots of other reasons why people take part in research in the health and social sciences.    Follow the links below if you would like to hear about other people’s experiences of interviews, focus groups and other types of research.
