This survey looks at training, support and developmental needs of participation workers. Its main recommendation is the need for a network of participation workers. 186 people took part in the research, conducted across England and Wales, between June and September 2001. The results showed overwhelming support for the establishment of a Participation Workers Service which would provide specialist advice, support training and networking opportunities. Proposals for the structure and functions of this service are explored in this report.
