    • IntroductionAdult Social Care is changing, putting people who use services at the heartof their own care and support. Services will be provided differently to meetindividual needs giving people who use services and their carers greatercontrol over their lives. The key to achieving successful and lasting changein social care, is by gaining the genuine involvement of a wide range ofinterested people, including those who use services, enabling them toshare their knowledge and experience and to positively influence change.Redbridge has a good track record of involving people who use servicesand carers in the planning, development and monitoring of services.However this has been largely uncoordinated and often involves only onegroup of people with a particular service need. As we beginimplementation of the Government Strategy “Putting People First”, wehave a responsibility to develop ways of ensuring people can exercisechoice and control over their lives, and to help give them a voice on servicedevelopment through advocacy and brokerage support linked to thedevelopment of User Led Organisations based on the model of Centres forIndependent Living. We will also need to provide access to universalinformation and advice services for all citizens.  Page 3 of 34 
    • In order to ensure that we involve people effectively we need to develop away of consulting and involving people equally, which builds on the goodprocesses that are already in place.We need a framework which takes a cross cutting approach to consultation,identifying shared areas of interest, as well as issues which impact on singleinterest groups. This framework will equally value the views of individuals,groups and wider forums, providing as many people as possible with theopportunity to share their views on our plans for transforming adult socialcare.The proposals contained in this report bring together the findings fromearlier consultations and a Workshop held on 29 September 2009. Thereport is in two parts firstly to propose a way of involving more people inthe changes in Adult Social Care in a consistent way and secondly tosuggest a way of working that will ensure we are as inclusive as possible.We spoke to people who use services, voluntary organisations, other serviceproviders as well as NHS and Council staff. We were told that we should nottry to duplicate what was already working well but to try to find a way of co-ordinating involvement building on existing good practice  Page 4 of 34 
    • BackgroundA number of people have already put themselves forward to be involved inTransforming Adult Social Care when they attended the followingWorkshops, that were held during the summer of 2009 including :- • Informing the Commissioning Strategy (21 April 2009); • Developing a User Led Organisation in Redbridge (3 June 2009); and • Developing a model for User and Carer involvement (29 September 2009)Reports and outcomes from the workshops were sent to everyone thatcame and are available on the council website at Redbridgei.gov.uk. Atthe close of each event participants were asked if they would like to beinvolved in future work. We had excellent feedback and a number of peoplesaid they would like to be involved either by joining working groups,receiving information by post or email such as newsletters or surveys. SeeAppendix 3.2We invited independent Facilitators, Christine Burke and Micheline Masonto help us think about how we could develop aneffective model for service user and carerinvolvement. We agreed that their report fromthis work and a proposed model would form thebasis of our first consultation to pilot our modeland test whether it works. If it does work, we willcontinue to evaluate and expand the model toinclude a wider range of stakeholders.We will also need to consider how our proposals fit in with the workcurrently being coordinated in the voluntary sector to develop a User LedOrganisation (ULO) in Redbridge, based on a coalition model. A diagramshowing how the work meshes together with the work of the TASCWorkstreams and the ULO is included in this document as Appendix 3. Wewill also consider links to the consultation framework in place as part of theRedbridge Strategic Partnership.  Page 5 of 34 
    • Piloting the ModelThe diagram over the page sets out the proposed model, which we willpilot in order to test its effectiveness. It shows that we have heard what wewere advised by people that use services, that is that we should look at thearrangements that are already in place and build on that expertise,knowledge and commitment. Hopefully the groups mentioned will beeasily recognised and if there are any gaps or if we have left anyone off wewould like to hear about it. We will use the guidelines set out below (pages), which were developed from service user and carer suggestions at theWorkshop on 29th September 2009.We will approach the lead organisations to help us identify individuals thatcould become Citizen Leaders responsible for representing theircommunity and will form the Redbridge Service User Reference Group(ReSurg). They will be provided with appropriate training and support toundertake this role.When the consultation is complete we will evaluate the process. If thefindings show we have been successful in reaching our target audience wewill continue to refine the model along the same lines, taking account offeedback we have received.As part of the consultation process we will be asking some key questionswhich will help us find out if the model and the guidelines work well foreveryone. The consultation questions can be seen at the back of this reportas Appendix 2  Page 6 of 34

    •  The Model Guidelines for Service User and CarerInvolvementThe guidelines below have been put together to help consultations be clearand includes everyone. They will help with developing a commitment tomaking consultations real. These guidelines do not form a rulebook andshould be used with other forms of good practice. Guidelines The first step is to write a consultation plan including a budget. It needs to state how it will be evaluated. The following format maybe helpful. Pre-meeting Why is the consultation being carried out?What is the main reason for wanting to consult? Is it due to a legalrequirement? What do you expect to achieve from the consultation?What is the consultation about?What are you asking in the consultation; what can be changed?Who does the subject of the consultation affect?Who could be affected by the subject being consulted on? Who should begiven the chance to take part in the consultation?Are you including everyone?Have you identified the equalities groups you need to involve and how?  Page 8of 34 
    • Will you do an Equalities impact assessment?Have you allowed enough time to feedback?Is your timeline realistic to make sure you are able to check responsesbefore using consultation information.What methods will be used?Choosing methods that makes sure you are including everyone. Also theinvitation should be sent in different styles to make sure it reacheseveryone. That it gives people an option how they wish to be consulted.How will the consultation responses be used?People need to know that when they are being consulted their voices willbe heard and taken seriously.You need to be transparent about what you are not consulting aboutbecause you cannot change it.How will you feedback?You need to explain from the beginning how this will happen.How will you evaluate the consultation?Being clear from the beginning what you will do if you do not meet all theabove and how you will know you have. How will you check and who willdo this? Accessibility - Venue/information The choice of the venue should include physical access, parking, transport links, being welcoming, good food, right temperature, enough space and light, no barriers (like columns) in the room, break out rooms, facilities for young people if appropriate.Information needs to be in as many formats as possible including easy readand electronic.  Page 9 of 34 
    • It needs to be clear if people are being paid to participate or not, and howmuch. Claim forms need to be provided.Supporters need to be well briefed in terms of the process and also theirrole (they are there to support people’s voice, not for their voice to beheard). If need be they could be consulted separately. Good Organisation Good organisation will determine the quality of the consultation. Plenty of advance notice – consult a religious calendar to avoid festivals or religious events; well designedinformation; booking facilitators, set programme for consultation whichmight include home visits, booking language interpreters including BSL ifrequired, booking and briefing supporters; arranging pre-meetings. Transport Check if people need transport organised to drop off and pick up at the beginning and end of the day. Transportneeds to be organised around the needs of the session, not the providerse.g. day centres. Consider the use of taxis.Other Factors to ConsiderSeriousness of intent: The consultations should not happen unless youintend to act on their recommendations.Respect: An attitude of respect needs to be taken if you are asking peopleto volunteer time, effort and experience.The ConsultationThe example questions below are suggestions that can be varieddepending on nature of the consultation. 1. What do you want? 2. What has been useful so far? 3. What are the barriers to be overcome?  Page 10 of 34 
    • Listening to Each Other The listening exercise described in this report will help participants to think aloud in a confidential and supported way. It gives an opportunity to explore their thoughts of whatthey want for themselves as a benchmark to what they are being consulted about. How to Include Everyone This question needs to be asked before the consultation is designed in order to make sure that everyone is reached e.g. meeting the needs of people who are deaf, blind, needinterpretation, in hospital or prison, unable to leave home, do not usewords or who need a different environment in order for them to say whatthey want. This may lead to different styles of consultation andcommunication being used, including home visits.Consultations should be organised at weekends and evenings as well asduring working hours in order to include working people.A briefing paper needs to be sent with the invitation explaining exactlywhat the process before, during and after will be. This should be in anaccessible format and take into consideration different flexible methodsthat need to be taken in order to include everyone.External FacilitationThere are benefits in using external facilitation as this will help participantsto speak up without fear. Families and individuals often say that they wouldnot say anything negative in fear that they may lose the support that theyalready have. Also if people want to say something about the nature ofsupport it would be important that the facilitators there to help them speakup are not from the services they are using. This is also true for youngpeople if their teachers or parents are present.There are benefits in organising a separate session or at the feedbackprocess to inform and make sure people voices are heard by those in powerin an anonymous way.  Page 11 of 34 
    • Other Things Check for dietary requirements, make sure vegetarian and meat dishes are separate, make sure there is a room for people topray if they need to; electronic equipment and sitting arrangements shouldbe set well in advance.Clear Structure to the DayThe process of the day needs to be explained fully. The structure of the dayshould include small groups and pairs as well as speakers, so everyone has achance to contribute. Structured listening is useful. Presentations need tobe short, clear and accessible. Use of film, music, pictures all help keeppeoples interest.The pace of the day needs to be a realistic one to allow people to think andexpress themselves despite any language or communicationdifferences.Timekeeping - Beginnings and ending and breaks should berespected to avoid fatigue.People should have access to refreshments and comfort facilitiesthroughout the day.Feedback after the eventAfter the event participants should be given information as to what willhappen next. They need to know when they will receive minutes of theconsultation and information of outcomes, and if there will be any furthermeetings.       Page 12 of 34 
    • Closing Remarks Although good consultation is important it does not replace the need for disabled people and elders to organise in order to be able to define what they want and fight for their rights.User led organisations need to also be supported and resourced so they canlead the agenda themselves.  Page 13 of 34 
    •   Appendix 1 Feedback from Christine Burke and Micheline Mason on the Consultation Workshop Held on 29th September 2009IntroductionThe Government’s intent to consult with the public has led, and is leading to manyconsultations to involve citizens in guiding the outcomes of future policies. In order toprevent this from becoming tokenistic or ineffective it is important for all wishing toconsult to be clear why they are consulting and what impact these voices will have. Thisis even more important when trying to involve those they find it hard to reach, e.g.disabled people or ethnic minorities. This report is written in the hope that it will create aflexible and inclusive model for ensuring we are able to hear everyone’s voice.The Government has written a strategy called Putting People First. It says that AdultSocial Services have to change the way it works by making services more person centredand more able to meet the needs of everyone who needs to use services by giving themmore choice. Lots of different people with different needs use social care services. Sothey will want to have a say about how changes might affect them.Staff in Adult Social Services need to hear what people think about the plans for changeand want to put in place a way of finding out from lots of people whether the changesmake things better for them and their families.The Brief We Were GivenThe London Borough of Redbridge invited theFoundation for People with Learning Disabilities (theFoundation) to help them to develop a model forInvolvement and Consultation for Service User andCarers in the Transforming Adult Social CareProgramme.   Page 14 of 34 
    • The Foundation was asked to help find out the best way of working together acrossservice user groups and helping people to take a lead in consultation and involvement.Christine Burke, Service Development Manager at the Foundation, and Micheline Mason,Disabled activist and Associate Consultant for the Foundation, were commissioned tohelp work out how to improve service user and carer involvement.This report is based on feedback from the workshop to see if their ideas will work and bea good process for service user and carer involvement.MethodologyA workshop was organised and the London Borough of Redbridge invited older people,carers, people with disabilities and / or mental health problems and people with alearning disability. They asked them to tell us what is the best way of making sure asmany people as possible can get involved in planning future services and don’t miss outon getting the services and support they need.The Foundation asked for a brief, including an accessible version, to be sent out byRedbridge to all coming to the planning workshop and the actual workshop.The facilitators met to plan and prepare materials for the day and for a pre-meeting withpeople with learning disabilities.The Pre-workshop MeetingWe wanted to make sure the people invited knew whatthey were being consulted about and why. For thisreason we held a pre-meeting with a number of peoplewith learning disabilities to help explain the brief and thepoint of consultation. We did this to find out what wouldhelp them to be included.At the pre meeting participants asked that: • All information was in plain English and accessible • The pace was such that allowed them thinking time • That they had a supporter to explain things if they needed it • To have space for working in pairs or small groups • To use Traffic Light Cards in order to make sure that everyone was able to ask a question, interrupt if things were not clear or too fast (this model uses a series of  Page 15 of 34 
    • coloured cards to facilitate participation, e.g a red card indicates ‘stop, I have missed a point, can you repeat) • Regular breaks • For future consultations and meetings to have a pre-meeting like the one designed for this process to be organised for them.We used this information in the design of the workshop.The WorkshopPeople were welcomed and made to feel comfortable. Hot drinks and refreshmentswere available on arrival with staff on hand.As it was a big group (over 60) we sat people around tables with a facilitator on eachtable. We set up a Power Point screen where everyone could see from their tables.We explained the programme for the day and all the materials to be used. Big sheets ofpaper with questions were available so they did not have to worry about having toremember what they were being asked to do at each stage. A graphic record of thesequence of the day was kept on the wall to help with remembering what people said.Our aim for the morning session was to give the group an experience of beingconsulted.We opened with a briefing session from the Local Authority (LA) so that everyone wasclear why they were there.We began the day with a 10 minute presentation from one of the consultants who isherself a disabled activist. She spoke about the struggledisabled people had had in the past to overcome theiroppression, and of many of the things they had achievedonce they became a united movement for change. Wedid this in order to put the day into a historical context ofthe importance of disabled people having a voicebecause they were excluded before. This was to helppeople see the importance of the efforts they weremaking by coming to the day, even though actual change may not be immediate orobvious. The next part of the programme was a listening exercise.  Page 16 of 34 
    • We asked people to pick a partner, and to take equal turns to listen to each other. Weinstructed the listeners to not interrupt, give advice or change the subject, but simply tolisten with delight whilst the other person took the chance to think aloud about thequestion we asked. We asked that the content of what each person said was to beconfidential (no one except themselves could refer to it afterwards). We timed thesessions (3 minutes each) and then asked for a few people to say what the experiencehad been like.The reason we did this was to give people a safer than usual chance to explore their realthoughts and feelings, and also to learn to really listen to others without interrupting. Inordinary life this opportunity is very rare. A consultation is primarily asking people tothink for themselves rather than just say what they think people want to hear.The next bit of the programme was asking three questions, with the partners from thefirst exercise. These are listed below along with the reasoning behind each:1. What Makes a Good Life? In order for everyone to have a clear definition of the meaning of consultation participants were asked to think about what makes a good life. We asked this particular question to focus people on their own goals, rather than the goals of service providers, which would then guide their responses to future consultation i.e. ‘Will this policy help me to achieve the life I want?’2. What helps us to achieve a good life? We asked this so that people could think about support and services which had been useful to them as a benchmark. These are things they might want more of.3. What gets in the way of achieving a good life? An opportunity for people to think about the barriers to their goals and the changes which might be needed in order to remove these barriers.After this we broke for lunch.After lunch we started the second half of the programme. The purpose of the secondhalf was to reflect on the process which had been experienced in the morning, which wehoped had been a model of good practice.  Page 17 of 34 
    • We then asked them to evaluate the first half of the day by asking the followingquestions: • What made it good? • What could be better? • Would it work for everyone? If not why not? • Whose voice is missing?The answers to these questions gave us the guidance for good consultation.We asked a final question: • How would you know you have been heard?This was to give us the guidance of what should follow a good consultation exercise.Some evaluation responses are listed below while the full responses can be found in theAppendix:The whole day felt welcoming, comfortable and easy.Good to share experiences.There was a clear structure to the day.The pre-meeting helped me to feel I could participate and heard.Thinking about ideas.Change of attitude “this is 2009 not 1889”.Process needs to take into account and identify gaps to enable a wider representation ofindividual needs and access to services.  Page 18 of 34

    •   Appendix 5 Developing a Model for Service User Engagement in Transforming Adult Social Care QuestionnaireWe would like to know what you think about this Report.This report is a record of what people who use health and social careservices told us at a Workshop on 29th September 2009. It also sets out whatwe think you described as a way of involving people that use services andtheir carers in the work we are doing to improve and modernise adult socialcare.To help us be sure that this is a good idea we are asking people who useservices and their carers to answer the following questions. You can eitherfill in the form yourself or you can tell someone what you think and askthem to tell us your ideas, by writing, emailing or telephoning JulieFanning, her contact details are on the front cover.To help us reach as many people as possible we will set up a group calledthe Redbridge Service User Reference Group and we will call it ReSURG forshort. The people that come to ReSURG will be asked to talk to lots of otherpeople about what happened at the ReSURG meetings and to tell ReSURGwhat the people they spoke to thought about the ideas discussed.              Page 31 of 34
