Learning for life

Inspirit is currently working with Fulfilling Lives in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham. We have been training a group of people with lived experience to be community partners. Their roles are varied but the prime purpose is to work with other service users or local partners to develop systems with better outcomes for marginalised service users. One of the most wonderful aspects to this work is the group’s absolute commitment to learning and development, all in the service of being the best that they can be. They are now glowing with confidence and self-awareness. No defence, just pure curiosity, exploration, practice and dialogue.

 

Now we are about to embark on another journey with newly recruited Experts by Experience who will act as consultants for the wider objective of system change. It’s been a long time coming!

Haringey Strategic Coproduction

Inspirit has been commissioned by Sarah Hart, Senior Public Health Commissioner, Haringey, to support the development of a service user led strategic group. The aim of the group is to support commissioning and the strategic development of substance misuse services in Haringey. Inspirit’s role is to recruit a small group, train them and support them to co-produce their own operating processes until they feel robust enough to work independently.

This is very exciting and those involved have been enthusiastically included by commissioners in the response to covid-19. Inspirit are currently supporting the new group to develop a peer research project regarding the recent loss of a well-liked user led community service in Haringey.. The results will be published here.
