The Charter for Involvement
Last updated: 2.11pm, Tuesday 10th February 2015
Members of Hansel’s Compass Network recently attended the launch of the revised Charter for Involvement
The Charter, published by the National Involvement Network, had been updated following evaluation and to reflect the increased emphasis on choice and control in social care policy. The Charter is unique in being written by people who use supports to show providers how to make meaningful involvement central to their services.
Heather Davidson, of the Compass Network, spoke at the launch, highlighting the ways in which the Charter will help people get involved in the services they receive, the organisations which provide those services and their wider communities.
Brain Robertson, Vice Chairperson of the National Involvement Network, then invited organisations to sign up to the new Charter. As in 2009, for the launch of the original Charter, Hansel were right at the front of the queue!
Our thanks to the National Involvement Network and all the individuals who worked so hard to produce this framework. You can find out more, and download the Charter, at: http://arcuk.org.uk/scotland/charter-for-involvement/
