Participatory Research – Health and Human Rights

A group of 5 volunteers at Glasgow Homelessness Network were given the opportunity to take part in research that tries to better understand the experiences of people who struggle to achieve equal rights of access to health services or good health because of other circumstances in their lives. They have written about their experiences here.

The volunteers said that “We hadn’t done much research before and we got to work with the University of Strathclyde and the ALLIANCE who provided us with a lot of training and support to build research skills, work out what questions to ask, how to ask them, and we all had ideas about where we could go to speak to people who were experiencing homelessness.”
