Transforming service delivery through lived experience
At Independent Futures we believe the best way to improve service delivery is to ask the users. We are a diverse group with direct lived experience of homelessness, addiction, mental health and offending who are committed to bring about lasting positive change to the way adult social services are delivered in Bristol.
“The launch of the Golden Key means hope to me. All I have known is being stuck in cycles of destruction, bouncing from one service to another, labels, locked wards, restrictions, contradictions, countless attempts and more failures. I had almost given up all hope not so long ago. I thought that I had crossed a line which I may never return from. I certainly never expected to now be part of a strong dynamic advisory group who are helping bring this project to life. The IF group’s vision is to continue to pool together all our years of front line experience, and in turn continue to grow in strength individually.”
