No Barriers Here is a co-produced, community-based action research project which aims to improve approaches to Advance Care Planning (ACP) for people often excluded from palliative and end of life care by identity, culture, ethnicity and race.
No Barriers Here are seeking individuals to join their co-production working group. This is to ensure that information, activities, and the project itself is informed and steered by people from Black, Asian, and ethnic minority communities with different cultural and faith backgrounds.
This is a voluntary role and will require you to attend six meetings with the co-production team, project lead and researcher throughout the duration of the project which is due to end April 2023.
Meetings will last no longer than one hour and will be held online. If the opportunity arose for a face-to-face meeting or planning day reasonable travel expenses would be covered.
You do not have to be a health or social care professional but someone who is passionate about equality and inclusion.
It would be helpful to have an insight into palliative and end of life care, but this is not a requirement. There may be other opportunities to be involved in the research workshops, data analysis and writing up/dissemination of the project if individuals are interested in this aspect of the work but again, this is not a requirement.
