This will involve the provision of support, information and training by the project team. (Branfield et al, 2004, p 5) We were anxious to ensure the equal involvement of all service users, including those who tend to be especially marginalised. We knew that this meant working in accessible ways which would support the involvement of a wide range of service users. We took inclusion to include addressing issues of difference in terms both of gender, ethnicity, belief, sexuality, age, disability and so on and also in terms of ensuring the inclusion of groups often identified as ‘hard to reach’ or as ‘seldom heard voices’.
Ours was conceived of as a ‘change and development’ project, which would: 24 Setting the scene for social care • work closely with a number of local services and their users to learn ways of overcoming barriers to person-centred support; • share learning about empowering approaches to support with a wider network; • explore opportunities to bring about change to the existing social care system or point to more radical reform for a better system of support (JRF, 2004). The Standards We Expect project was not envisaged as a research project, despite having research elements, but rather as about ‘making change’ and uncovering wider lessons about what people want and how this could be achieved.
In this way, we aimed to provide a basis ‘for implementing measures to support the valuing and rewarding of policy and practice for personcentred policy and practice and user involvement’ (Branfield et al, 2004, p 6). As part of our commitment to the change-making elements of the project, we wanted to explore both bottom-up and top-down approaches to change, while being conscious of the importance of service user and practitioner ownership of change. We were committed to producing a range of outputs which would support the practical and theoretical, practice and policy development, of person-centred support and which would assist service users, practitioners and managers, as well as other key actors concerned, to take forward this new approach to social care services and support.
