Best Practice

Scottish Drugs Forum has prepared a series of downloadable tipsheets to help services with various aspects of developing User Involvement capacity in their work.

Scottish Drugs Forum’s approach to User Involvement has been recognised as a model of good practice, being featured in a joint publication with Correlation, the European network for Social Inclusion and Health.

Developing a model of user involvement and social research in Scotland sets out the background to Scottish Drugs Forum’s development of the model and gives detailed information on how to deliver the model.

More locally, Scottish Drugs Forum User Involvement projects have twice won awards from the South Lanarkshire volunteer centre SoLVE in recognition of good practice in the voluntary sector.
