    Josh Cawley was 22 when he finally died from catastrophic injuries inflicted on him by his birth parents. These resulted in his inability to speak or to move from his wheelchair, but it didn’t dampen his positive and cheeky spirit. This is his story. Josh was adopted by Lynn Cawley, a campaigning Methodist Minister whose devotion to Josh ensured that he lived his short life as positively and ‘normally’ as possible. Lynn couldn’t just be his loving mum though. She was expected to be his palliative care consultant, his nurse, his campaigner for compensation and she had to fight the ongoing battles with the system .The play explores their real story: having to accept that Josh’s needs were too ‘complex’ for the hospice; and dealing with Josh’s transition from boy, to teenager to adult - and being his full-time interpreter.
    .Professional actor Joseph Daniel-Taylor performs the play and gives the voice to Josh - the voice that he never had.

    The Health Research Authority is holding its first research transparency week.
    The effectiveness and relevance of research is improved when opportunities to be involved in research are made more visible, open and accessible to the public. This is because it gives a study the best chance to involve the full range of people who will benefit from the outcomes of research.
    By having research opportunities more publicly available, researchers will be able to recruit and retain a wide, diverse range of research participants. As a result of increased diversity and better opportunities to access diversity and better opportunities to access research for more people, research will be more relevant, effective, trusted and transparent.
    At the same time, health professionals, commissioners, researchers, policy makers and funders can use research findings to make informed decisions, which will enhance public trust in research evidence and enhance public accountability.
    It is equally important to have an awareness and understanding of potential barriers that may restrict members of the public getting involved in research. Identifying these challenges and putting measures in place to counter them is therefore essential in the delivery of transparent research.
    This will be a two-hour online workshop, chaired by the co-Chairs of the Make it Public campaign group, Matt Westmore, Chief Executive of the HRA, and Derek Stewart, public contributor.
    The objective for attendees of this workshop will be to work together in facilitated small groups to explore this theme, and produce a set of 'top tips' to support best practice for those active in research.
    There will also be a short panel discussion, where attendees can hear directly from the study leads and research participants of studies, as well as organisations, working creatively and progressively in this area.
