Making it Real

Making it Real is for local people to have more choice and control so they can live full and independent lives.

Introduction to Making it Real 

We have developed our Making it Real programme which aims to change the way we plan, design, deliver and evaluate adult social care and support services. We hope to achieve this by working together with a range of people including those who use social care services or carers of someone using them. We will work together to assess our services against these 'I' statements (pdf, 302kb) (opens in a new window)

Get involved

There are lots of different ways you could get involved; from attending forums and workshops, to completing surveys or even by becoming one of our mystery shoppers. There is no specific amount of time you need to give - you can choose how and when you participate.

We are not able to offer you payment for any time you give, but will reimburse any travel and parking costs. We may also be able to offer you some support in order to participate, such as help getting online or coaching to improve confidence when attending meetings or forums.

To be part of the Making it Real programme, please register. This will give us a bit more information about you and how you would like to get involved.
