DUCIE aims to enhance the involvement of users and carers in learning and teaching through development of a support network for user and carer involvement development workers employed within UK higher education institutions (HEIs).
Meetings are held three times a year, with email and telephone contact maintained in between.
If you are a user and carer involvement worker in a Higher Education Institution (you may be employed under a different title, such as ‘development worker’, ‘consumer academic’ or ‘administrator’), you are welcome to join DUCIE. You are also welcome to bring along with you a colleague who supports your role within your institution.
To join DUCIE and/or for further information, contact Jill Anderson (01524 59 2836)
