How can we strengthen the voice of people with lived experience in campaigns for social change?
"Everyone has a 'lived experience' and individuals or staff may have a role but also have their own stories and journeys that can contribute to the overall process and outcome."
"Organisations 'letting go' and enabling people with lived experience to own and lead the process was effective..."
With the backing of Trust for London, the three charities, On Road Media, Revolving Doors and Women for Refugee Women, were brought together to plan and deliver an event to showcase their work with people with lived experience.
The event ‘How can we strengthen the voice of people with lived experience in campaigns for social change?’ was designed for funders, voluntary sector professionals, campaigners, and activists interested in learning ways to support their service users or beneficiaries in the co-design or co-delivery of work in their field.
The event was designed and led on the day by a team of facilitators with lived experience of inequality and poverty.
In this report, we share our learning from the process that emerged including the nature of our collaboration, and the challenges and opportunities that arose. We also touch on outcomes from the event, what participants found to be most useful, and what we might do differently next time.
