People with lived experience are directly involved in all of our decisions, via our Shadow Core Partnership. If you have experience of what works (and what doesn’t) for people with multiple needs, we want to hear from you.

We are always looking for people with personal experience of using services in Blackpool to join our Shadow Core Partnership. If you are accepted onto the group you will receive a full induction and any training necessary to enable you to participate fully in the group. The group meets monthly for usually a couple of hours. We will pay travel costs incurred for attending the meetings. For further information on the Shadow Core Partnership please contact Justin Nield, our Service User and Volunteer Coordinator.
