The Standards We Expect
Jennie Fleming, De Montfort University
The Standards We Expect project examined the barriers to person centred support and ways in which they may be overcome. The project's lead organisation is Shaping Our Lives, the national service user network. The research and development project centred solutions in eight partner areas across England and Scotland. It was a 30 month project funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The research project specifically concentrates on the views and opinions of service users and front line workers, two groups who continue to be marginalised in research. Bringing together these three constituencies was both original and significant in seeking innovative, shared solutions to the challenges faced by social care services in the twenty-first century.
We will present some of the interim findings of the project that were explored at our Get Together in 2007. These interim findings include:
The lead organisation on the research project was Shaping Our Lives, however it was a collaborative project with service users, practitioners and academics working in partnership together. It provides the knowledge base for improvement as well as a force for change.
