This report describes seven examples of research where service users or disabled people controlled the research process. It aims to provide a better understanding of the role and value of user-controlled research. It describes what difference it makes when the research agenda is held and directed by service users, in terms of the impact on the research, on the researchers and subsequently on policy and services.
