Job Title: Researcher & Consultant
Anne-Laure came to research through the experience of using mental health services. This eventually brought her into contact with the survivor movement, user involvement, then user-led and collaborative health and social care research. Her personal research interests combine both the psychosocial and political aspects of health and social care, specifically issues related to human rights, ethics (including philosophical dimensions and research ethics), and good practice in public and patient involvement (PPI) in general and in research and evaluation in particular. She has not only been involved in research as a patient by experience or as a user researcher, she has also ‘done’ PPI in research activities as the coordinator of a user-led research and evaluation project, and has published papers and authored or co-authored book chapters on the topic. This informs and feed into her activism at local, national and European levels. Anne-Laure is also the co-founder and the co-chair of the grassroots organisation the3million which is working to safeguard the rights of EU citizens in the UK post Brexit (www.the3million.org.uk)
