Service User Involvement

 Involvement Team

Valuing People says that people with learning disabilities should be fully involved in decisions that are important to them. This might mean having a say about your own care, or the services that you use.

We make sure that our service users have the chance to get involved in:

  • Making sure our information is easy to understand
  • Checking that our services are very good
  • Making changes to the service
  • Choosing the people who work for them
  • Training the people who work for them


We do this by making sure that people:

  • Get good information about the service
  • Can tell us what they think
  • Can make decisions about what the service will do


Some of the ways we do this are:

  • Working with service users to make sure that our information is easy to understand
  • Having a Service User Reference Group so that we can ask service users for their views, and to make decisions
  • Working with other groups of people with learning disabilities in Leeds
  • Holding meetings to make sure that everybody has the chance to come and have their say
  • Using person centred approaches and multi-media profiling to give people control over the care they choose
  • Involving service users in choosing staff for every part of the service
