A commissioner’s guide to developing and sustaining local user-led organisations

What do I do next? Moving forward on the ULO journey

This section describes four different scenarios which each represent key stages on the journey to having effective ULOs in your area. The scenarios also outline some of the key interventions you can make to help move further along the journey. Note that this feature contains typical examples you might find in each scenario. There are no steadfast rules about the development of ULOs. This means that a single area, or single ULO, is unlikely to conform to each description. It should also be noted that the journey from having a few committed individuals to having two or more well established ULOs will not always be straightforward or linear.

For more ideas on moving forward on your ULO journey, take a look at the Further resources section of this guide.
