In the shoes of … members of Force 4 Change, user-led group in Leicestershire

Building on from the recent interview with Karen Kidd, Chair of Force 4 Change in Leicestershire, we have now compiled this short video giving an overview of the recent Whose Shoes? workshop we shared with the group. Force 4 Change are a very lively group of people with disabilities who use social care services and we thank them sincerely for allowing us to film the session. The reality was that we took very little video as we were too busy joining in, listening and recording the key issues, but hopefully this short film gives a useful insight and a taste of the buzz we enjoyed.

The film includes the wonderful graphics by Anna Geyer, New Possibilities. Anna used the headings of TLAP’s “Making It Real” document as a framework to map the issues and we had some interesting findings…but more of that anon…

In the meantime, we are planning to compile a powerful case study from all the material gathered …

What is happening… and what still needs to happen to “make it (personalisation) real” for these individuals and this user-led group in Leicestershire?

    Thanks Maria – from a great photographer, that is high praise indeed! Thanks for your continued interest in the Whose shoes? approach.
    Off to Manchester shortly 🙂 Gill


  3. It’s great to be able to look back at this event Gill, the video has captured the day perfectly. There is so much rich information that comes out of the debate and discussion that is generated – something that Local Authorities can really benefit from particularly if they are wanting to find ways to achieve co-production of services.

    Memories of a good day. The game Whose Shoes? opened up discussions. How it was for all involved – not just how it was for for those who use services. We need to keep going on about person centred services. It can change the quality of life for those living with disabilities.
