Abstract: This report describes the impact of a pre-funding bursary scheme that aims to support user involvement in the early stages of developing a grant application. Feedback from researchers who received a bursary suggests that the involvement helped to:
• refine research questions and design
• develop dialogue between service users and researchers
• identify service users for involvement in the remainder of the project
• create opportunities for researchers to learn about involvement and for service users to learn about research.
The authors draw out a series of recommendations for setting up similar schemes.
