This event will focus on discussing the importance of diversity in service user involvement, and how to meaningfully embed diversity into your work. We’ll also look at the importance of centring the lived experience of specific communities and groups when developing and responding to work that affects them.
We will be hearing from Revolving Doors Agency’s lived experience team, who advise the national NHS England Liaison and Diversion Programme and are also members of its governance group.
We will also hear from another organisation about involving service users in work that challenges the inequalities faced by specific communities in the criminal justice system.
There will be the opportunity to get practical advice from our speakers, as well as the chance to discuss the challenges you face, and how to take the next steps in embedding service user involvement into your work and ensure that a diverse range of people and experiences are central to this.
Involving people and families with lived experience in designing and delivering services is key to the difference we can make in the lives of people in contact with the criminal justice system. Clinks’ State of the Sector 2019 survey showed that 67% of organisations consult service users on the design and the delivery of their services, and 37% said they have a service user forum, panel or council to facilitate engagement.
