Lived experience and commissioners

Commissions and Commissioners said that including people with lived experience was one of the most important parts of their work.

Lived experience is when you have the experience of something yourself instead of hearing about it from someone else.

For example, people with learning disabilities have lived experience of having a learning disability.

Commissioners said that it is expensive to make sure that people with lived experience are part of the work but it is something which always needs to happen.
