Involving service users in governance

Service user involvement managers’ network event
November 14, 2017 - 1:00pm to 4:30pm


For the voices of people with lived experience to have the greatest impact on your work, they need to be heard at every level of decision making – including through your governance structures.

This afternoon network event will explore different ways to involve service users in governance.  You will:

  • Hear practical examples of how organisations go about involving people with lived experience in their governance arrangements, and the experiences of the people involved.
  • Discuss the recent Charities Act legislation and what you need to do to recruit or retain people with convictions as trustees.
  • Share your ideas, successes or challenges, and learn from others’ experiences.

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.


£25, member only
