National Care Service - information sharing to improve care support: seldom heard voices co-design findings

We have been working with organisations who support people from groups and communities who often have barriers to engaging with government. This report is about findings from this work relating to the Information sharing to improve social care support co-design theme.

Co-design sessions

We ran co-design sessions with people from different backgrounds and communities. The people who took part had experience of a range of services, including justice social work services and children’s services.

At the sessions we discussed a range of topics and not just information sharing in health and social care.

Our sessions were held in:

  • Inverness
  • Aberdeen
  • Glasgow
  • Kilmarnock
  • Kirkcaldy
  • Cumbernauld
  • Grangemouth
  • Edinburgh
  • Larkhall
  • Irvine
  • Perth
  • Blantyre

We also held some sessions online for people who could not travel.

To run these sessions, we worked with:

Through this work, we have been able to reach communities and groups who we’ve not fully engaged with until now. This includes, among others:

  • Gypsy and Traveller communities
  • LGBTQI+ communities
  • ethnic minority communities
