Part of the Picture - LGB Drugs and Alcohol Research
The Part of the Picture (POTP) research project is a five-year partnership between The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (LGF) and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
Interviews now taking place!
Are you lesbian, gay or bisexual? Do you use drugs and/or alcohol, or have you used them in the past? Have you ever accessed help, advice or support for your drug and/or alcohol use? This could include help, advice or support from substance use services, as well as the internet, friends and family, your doctor, a telephone helpline, self-help books etc.
The Part of the Picture research team are looking for people to take part in interviews about their experiences of accessing help, advice or support for drug and/or alcohol use. Interviews can either take place in person if you live in the North West or over the phone if you live further afield.
Many different time slots in December are available for the interviews which should last around 30 minutes.
We will thank participants with a £20 high street voucher as well as pay reasonable travel expenses for those who take part in a face-to-face interview.
For more information, or if you would like to take part, please email Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0845 3 30 30 30.
POTP has three main aims:
- The establishment of an England-wide database of lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people’s drug and alcohol use.
- The use of the database to directly inform local and national policy and practice in addressing the drug and alcohol use of LGB people.
- An improved knowledge and understanding of the needs of LGB drug and alcohol users amongst drug and alcohol agencies, through dissemination of the research findings.
POTP is funded by the Big Lottery Fund's Research Programme.
