Our Participation team work to champion the voice of people with lived experience to help shape the design, development, delivery and evaluation of our services. This includes acting on national priorities such as the development of peer support and integration of the recovery approach as well as creating opportunities for collaboration between staff, service users and their friends, family and carers to address challenges and generate solutions to any issues.
There are a range of ways to get involved:
- Working together groups - open forums where people with experience of using our services meet to share views and generate ideas to resolve issues and seek collaborative opportunities with staff to create service improvements.
- Expert by Experience Programme - regular workshops for people to gain skills to get involved in a range of participation activities. The day long workshop covers recruitment, getting involved in meetings and quality visits to services. Participants are invited to join a database through which opportunities are listed.
