Benefits Advice Service for involvement
Members of the public who are in receipt of welfare benefits and are offered payment for involvement need to consider how the payment might affect their benefits. This new confidential service provided by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) in partnership with others, has expert knowledge and can offer valuable advice on how payment of fees and expenses for public involvement might affect people in receipt of state benefits. This includes involvement in health or social care research, service design or service delivery.
Who is the Benefits Advice Service for?
INVOLVE on behalf of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is making it available to:
- members of the public involved with NIHR organisations
- members of the public involved in studies funded by the NIHR
- staff within NIHR organisations who are supporting members of the public to get involved
