Funding awarded: £9,997

The Drug Harm Prevention Research project is carrying out focus groups with people who use drugs to explore perceptions of the use of administrative data in research. They’ve recently received ethical approval to begin their workshops, which will result in a stop-motion animation film resource to be shared among the community and create a lasting impact. 

Working with Restoration Fife, a Dunfermline-based community organisation for people in recovery from drug and alcohol use, the work will also create a register of people who may be interested in taking part in further research in the future. 

Follow-up workshops will be carried out to produce a stop-motion animation and resources to share through the wider community.
