November 2005. Full Report.

Authors: Michael Turner and Peter Beresford

User controlled research has been developed by service users and their
organisations as a new approach to undertaking research and evaluation. The
aim of this project was to find out more about the definition, nature and
operation of user controlled research. It was carried out both through a
literature review and through information provided directly by a wide range of
service users and service user researchers in a series of individual interviews
and group discussions.

An easy read summary of the report is also available.
