Oldham's Involvement Levels

As part of our work to support the involvement of children, young people and carers in Oldham Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) agenda, we worked with colleagues at Oldham Council and Parents of Oldham In Touch (POINT) to develop a model we are calling Oldham's Involvement Levels.

This aims to help everyone understand how we are involving service users and other stakeholders in our work on a spectrum which ranges from communicating change to fully co-producing solutions together.  This reflects that there is more potential to share decision making in some circumstances than others. By describing our involvement work with reference to the Involvement Levels, we can make sure everyone - both people who use services and those who provide them – are on the same page about what the scope for user involvement is in any piece of work.
