Report 47: User involvement in adult safeguarding

Supporting involvement

The involvement of people who use services needs to be supported in a range of ways which include briefing and information on what is expected, debriefing, and accessible information and meeting formats.

Introduction

This section looks how the involvement of people who use services in social care can be supported and be effective. Research shows that even groups who are seldom-heard can be involved, given enough investment of time and using methods that work for those groups, and that involvement of people who use services is beneficial in a wide range of ways – to the people themselves and to the staff who work with them, and can improve services provided.
