Supporting your research

“It's absolutely liberating & empowering. You really feel you're part of something quite innovative & exciting that's going to make life better for such a lot of people.”

Tina / VOICE Member

“VOICE was a great way of improving our research - from citizen feedback on initial research ideas & help with designing the research, to the end of the research cycle helping us to disseminate the findings”

Dr Sheena Ramsay / Newcastle University

“On every occasion there has been one of those jaw dropping moments, where we learn something from their responses that's often taken us quite some time to build in to what we do. I would say where we're at now is much better than where we would have been without that deep insight from VOICE”

Professor Peter Gore / ADL Smartcare

“I have a greater knowledge base and with that comes a confidence”

Sandy / VOICE Member

“We are volunteering the accumulated knowledge we have gathered over our entire lives.”

Tom / VOICE Member
