How do we achieve diversity in and through service user involvement? And can participation help to address issues of equality and diversity?
Clinks’ service user involvement managers’ network is designed to give you the chance to share your ideas, expertise and challenges with your peers in the sector. Whether you’re new to service user involvement or have lots of experience in supporting engagement and participation, join us to support, inspire and learn from one another.
At this network event, in partnership with IF group we will be exploring equality and diversity in service user involvement:
- How can we involve a diverse range of people with lived experience and ensure we hear from many different voices?
- What are the barriers to engagement for different groups?
- How can diversity in participation support equality and diversity in your organisation?
Involving people with lived experience of the criminal justice system in designing, developing and delivering services is a vital way in which the voluntary sector supports people to change their lives. Yet achieving meaningful service user involvement can be hugely challenging, and ensuring the full range of people you support are enabled to take part, even more so.
We will hear from expert speakers, including Shaping our Lives and our partners the IF group, as well as plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss these themes together.
