Current Volunteering Opportunities

Peer Research Volunteers

Do you have a lived experience of substance use and want to use this experience to help others?

Scottish Drugs Forum are looking for people with lived experience of substance use in Tayside, Fife and East Ayrshire to become peer research volunteers.

The role will involve supporting research projects for SDF and our partners and will include interviewing people to find out about their experiences.

SDF peer researchers are involved in every step of the research, from designing the research tools, collecting data, analysing data, to reporting on the findings to decision makers.

Full training and support is provided to give you the skills and confidence needed to carry out the research role.

If this sounds like something you or someone you know would be interested in, please get in touch with SDF’s Senior Officer for Volunteering and Engagement, Jason Wallace, at or call 0141 221 1175
