This series of events aims to support professionals in Scotland working across a wide range of policy areas to explore the practicalities of embedding lived experience into system and service design processes. The workshops will inform the Authentic Voice project’s ambitions to support professionals to embed lived experience in a high quality, trauma-informed way and empowering way. The workshops bring together a range of professionals across different policy agendas to discuss:

  • The extent to which their work is currently shaped by people with lived experience of violence against women and girls (VAWG) and trauma;
  • The current challenges and barriers to doing this and the tools, support and resource needed to overcome these.
  • Key opportunities to work together in a joined-up, person-centred way in the future.

The workshops will focus on key challenges which have been highlighted by stakeholders in the Authentic Voice project’s introductory engagement activities so far. The following 3 workshops are now available for registration:

Attendee numbers at the workshops will be limited to ensure stakeholders have the opportunity to participate in discussions and to make the sessions as interactive as possible.
