Join us for a free half day event on 23rd November 2018. This is an information event for people with lived experience wanting to share these experiences with students at the University of Essex. Do you look after somebody with health needs, (have you) seen a health or social care practitioner, been to hospital, have an illness or disability? We are looking for people just like you to work with us. By attending this event you can get involved with influencing learning and teaching, recruiting the right students, assessing students and actively getting involved in research within a university setting. You can do as little or as much as you want.

The University of Essex is part of an elite group of ‘dual intensive’ universities gold rated for teaching excellence (TEF2017) and the 25th in the UK for research quality (Times Good University Guide 2018). The School of Health and Social Care sits at the forefront of preparing people for the opportunities and challenges of twenty-first century care. We offer courses across two campuses, in Southend and Colchester, which critically engage with the realities of the current and future health and social care. We work collaboratively with our Service User Reference Groups on our curriculum design and delivery, as well as at critical points such as our interviewing our applicants. We currently work with Shaping Our Lives. Shaping Our Lives is a national user-led non profit making organisation. Shaping Our Lives provides inclusive involvement services and hosts a national network of user-led groups, service users and disabled people. We Support organisations to develop inclusive involvement policies and practices, so that people with lived experience can effectively inform services.
