Shared Experiences - Learning Together
The Faculty of Education Health and Wellbeing (FEHW) formally sets out through this strategy its continuing commitment to service user and carer involvement. The strategy outlines our vision for service user and carer involvement and the actions we will take over the next three years.
It is recognised that the experiences of each service user and carer is unique. As a Higher Educational Institute (HEI) we can and should seek to gain invaluable insight and understanding into the experiences of service users and their carer’s. The ultimate purpose of involvement is to develop, critical, flexible, reflective, innovative social work and health care practitioners able to respond to the changing needs of service users and their carers both now and in the future.
In refreshing this strategy we have met and consulted with service users and carers, health and social work colleagues and student representatives on the Strategy Hub Group to discuss and agree the contents of the action plan. The draft plan has also been circulated widely to subject leads and Heads of Service for comment and was finally adopted by the Strategy Hub Group in January 2014.
