The SHARE project was a three year collaboration between GCU and SCVO and as a result of the project, user and carer involved is now embedded across The School of Health and Life Sciences including in teaching, curriculum development and research. 

Project Description

The School of Health and Life Sciences recognises that service users, carers and third sector organisations have the knowledge and life experiences that are vitally important to us. By identifying and developing a wide variety of opportunities available for service users and carers to share their experiences and expertise with the teaching and research staff of GCU, the work of the School will be greatly enhanced. ‌ The project culminated in an event at the Glasgow Science Centre for school children where the researchers and students created a bendy lab to look at flexibility and the importance of stretching before sport or physical activity.

Project Aims

GCU strives to provide the highest standard of health and social care education and research. It is important that we are always looking for new and innovative ways to involve people in our work.
