Thinking Outside the (Tick) box

The UK’s first user-led involvement conference

Come along to the Shaping Our Lives conference on 1st November, an opportunity for marginalised groups to come together and share their thoughts about how we can use our lived experience to make services better, for everyone.

Join online or in Birmingham to hear from speakers about their intersectional experiences as service users. Topics covered will include food poverty, single-parenthood and homelessness. Hear from speakers about their experiences of involvement as a service user from the Muslim, LGBTQ+, Disabled, South Asian and Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.

There will be lunch and refreshments provided, travel bursaries available for those wanting to attend in person, and there will be BSL interpreters and captioning available.

It promises to be a day of discussions and diversity, an event of open-mindedness and willingness to share and learn from each other.
