Service User Involvement

What is Service User Involvement?

We are committed to create one united and powerful platform for user voices in Lincolnshire. We work with individuals and user groups to ensure that:

  • Your voice and those of your carers are heard clearly within the County
  • Policy and strategy are developed alongside you and rooted in your interests
  • Commissioners and service providers in Lincolnshire can understand the challenges faced by you and work with you to achieve a better Lincolnshire.

We also support you to become more involved with community activities and hold events throughout the county to encourage new opportunities for you to join in and develop your skills.


Alongside our statutory advocacy services, we provide a range of Involvement opportunities to enable vulnerable people to have their voices heard by decision makers. Some are national in scope, while other projects are local, supporting people to access and guide specific partnership boards. These include:

  • Lincolnshire Learning Disability Partnership Board – link here
  • Lincolnshire Mental Health Partnership Group

We are also currently working with Lincolnshire County Council on seeking people’s views around Co-production Charter which sets out how the local authority and commissioned services will work with individuals. We will keep you updated on outcomes from this piece of work.

These projects are central to VoiceAbility’s vision of a society in which everyone’s voice, rights and choices are heard, understood and respected; which drives our mission of strengthening voice, supporting rights, changing lives.
