Involving all the public in future services – Beyond The Usual Suspects findings national launch
On Monday 28th April 2014 Shaping Our Lives are launching the findings of a national research study about involving people from diverse communities in the policy, planning and delivery of services and in improving their wellbeing. The study shows how people who want to can be more involved in shaping how they live their lives and the services they use.
Come and discuss why people who experience poor access and support from services also have less opportunities to be involved, often leading to greater inequality and disadvantage.
The event is FREE to attend and you will hear from:
- Peter Beresford OBE, Professor of Social Policy at Brunel University and author of ‘Beyond the Usual Suspects’
- Peter Hay, Strategic Director for People at Birmingham City Council
- Service users giving their perspective
- Health watch and local commissioners on meeting local needs
