Shaping our Lives works with people, especially those facing the biggest barriers, to build better more inclusive services and support.

About Inclusive Involvement

Involvement activities enable people to have a say in policies and services that affect their lives. It can mean sharing experiences of using services, of being part of a diverse community or of having an impairment or long-term health condition.

However, not everyone has an equal chance to be involved. Inclusive involvement is about positively enabling people from marginalized communities to be heard.
