Service User Involvement Managers' Network

Service User Involvement Managers' Network

February 24, 2017 - 10:00am


How can you best involve people with lived experience of the Criminal Justice System in designing and delivering your services?

Whether you're new to service user involvement or have plentiful experience, this specialist networking event will give you the chance to share your ideas and expertise with other Clinks members. We’ll also hear from voluntary sector organisations leading the way in best practice in service user involvement and coproduction, and from ‘experts by experience’ who are now helping to shape the services they use.

Confirmed speakers: 
Gary Wallace, Public Health Specialist at Plymouth City Council on service user involvement in commissioning

Soo Brizell-Hogg and colleagues from Shekinah on supporting service users to move into staff roles within their organisation

People and families with lived experience are a vital source of intelligence about how to improve services; and being involved can make a huge difference in service users' lives.  Yet achieving meaningful service user involvement can be challenging for many organisations.

Celebrate your successes, share your challenges, identify what support you need, and inspire one another to promote and build service user involvement across the voluntary sector working in criminal justice.

This event is for Clinks members only (click here to check if you are a Clinks member, and click here to join Clinks) The network is aimed at practitioners managing service user involvement in their organisation, and those looking to begin or improve the way they engage their service users.

Lunch will be provided from 1.30pm.
