How can I get advice and support?
You should be offered all of the information and support that you will need to be able to get involved in a research activity.
However, you know best what your needs are, so if there is something that you feel would be helpful, it's important that you let the researchers or public involvement worker you are working with know about it.
Training may be very helpful to you. Do ask the researchers or public involvement worker if any will be available and what support they are able to offer for your role. You might also want to ask if you will be offered a mentor or someone to talk to on a regular basis.
For further information on getting involved in research read INVOLVE's Public Information Pack - Booklet 2: Getting started.
