Get Involved

You are an expert in your lived experience

We see lived experience as an asset. You are an expert in your own life. We recognise that you can help to improve the services that people with multiple and complex needs use. Because of that, voluntary and public sector agencies across the City will value your insight. You can be a leader of systems change.

As part of the Expert Citizens network, you can be an ambassador for multiple and complex needs. You can encourage decision-makers to listen, learn, and change their services for the better.

We offer a variety of ways to be involved. If you want to use your lived experience to make a difference, please get in touch.
