Shaping Our Lives is a non-profit, user-led group, led by Disabled people and service users. They want to make sure everyone can have their say, especially those from marginalised groups who often face barriers to getting involved.
Involvement activities enable people to influence and improve policies and services that affect their lives, like health or social care. Involvement can mean sharing your experiences and opinions in a focus group, a patient involvement forum, or a research study.
The My Involvement Profile was designed by Disabled people. It’s made up of two simple template forms.
It can help you:
- Keep a record of your involvement activities.
- Keep a list of your access and support requirements so you don’t have to keep repeating them.
- Each section has help notes to assist you in completing it if you need them.
