The SUCI Office at Glenside (room 1B28) offers a work place for users and carers involved in the Faculty, somewhere to access emails, or drop off material for teaching sessions, or a place to meet academic staff and make arrangements.

Fiona Earlam, the Service User and Carer Initiative Administrator, is based there. Fiona has been working with service users and carers in the School for many years and has built up expertise in accessible communications, disability awareness, and links with user and carer led community groups. Fiona is happy to talk with staff about the practicalities of service user and carer involvement in the Faculty.
 

UWE, Bristol considers a service user, carer or member of the public participating in activities in the Faculty are providing a service to the Faculty and payment is available on request.  Service users and carers in receipt of benefits, could be affected by receiving payment and it is their responsibility to seek advice from CAB and/or Department of Work and Pensions. However, there is some very helpful advice from the National Institute for Health Research; Payment for Involvement in Research document which is also relevant for involvement in teaching and learning.
