About the Expert Working Group

The Expert Working Group is co-chaired by Peter Fonagy and Dame Christine Lenehan – See their biographies below – and combines the knowledge of experienced professionals from the health, social care, academic and voluntary sectors, people who use services, together with the SCIE project team.

SCIE has a commitment to co-production. This means we work in partnership with people who are experts by experience. For this project, we have young people with experience of being in care on the group, as well as people who are working as frontline practitioners in health and social care.

The Expert Working Group’s role in the project is advisory. Throughout the project it will play a crucial part in considering the best available evidence to assist in developing the care pathways, models of care and quality principles, and ensuring that the project develops products that will be of real value and use in the future.
