Using our Experiences to Influence Change
When: 10.00 - 12.30pm, Friday 01 March 2019 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.
As part of Delivering Differently, an 18 month strategic review of mental health and employability services, there is a commitment to involving people with lived experience of mental ill health and employability services in the development of future and current services across Fife. To be able to provide services that people need and want, we need to listen and work with people using them.
Often services use numbers, feedback and case studies from people using services in evaluations and reports. Delivering Differently has found that people with lived experience would prefer to have a variety of different ways and opportunities to share their own experiences and would like to learn different ways to do this.
Working with Scottish Recovery Network, we have developed two workshop sessions for people to develop their story and explore different ways of sharing.
We expect people to attend both sessions.
Friday 01 March 2019: Whose story is it? Developing my story.
Friday 08 March 2019: Developing practical hints and tips.
Both sessions will run from 10am to 12.30pm with a tea/coffee break
The workshops will be experiential and we will work together as a group to support each other.
Please note, there is no parking available at New Volunteer House. However, Kirkcaldy train station is just a short walk away with plenty of free parking spaces.
