About Us

Who are we?

We are a team of researchers from Manchester Metropolitan University who are committed to improving social and health care for people who use substances, their families and friends, and practitioners who support them.

The NIHR project in Liverpool and Sefton / A new Model of Care

In 2019 we started a project, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in England. This builds on our previous work exploring responses to end of life care for people using substances. It aims to improve access to palliative care for people using substances and better support for those caring for them. We are working with 10 health and social care organisations across Liverpool and Sefton, as well as with people who use substances and their family caregivers. We are hoping to provide information and advice that encourages people to focus on the well-being of people who use substances and are becoming increasingly ill. This website is part of that.
