Citizen Leadership

 In this section you can learn more about Citizen Leadership and the User and Carer Forum which is facilitated by SCLD.

"Services should give us the support to live the lives we want to live. If we, as citizens, have more say over the services we receive, there is more chance that those services will be right for us."

Citizen Leadership is about a change of relationship between people who use services and people who provide them. In this new relationship people as citizens take on shared responsibility for making sure services meet their needs.

Find out how to make Citizen Leadership happen by reading the Principles and Standards of Citizen Leadership, written by the User and Carer Forum.

If you think you or your organisation are doing something which sounds like Citizen Leadership, why not get in touch with us about being considered for the Citizen Leadership Gallery?  You can read more about the Gallery here.
