Shaping Our Lives and the National Survivor User Network (NSUN), two key national disabled people’s and service user networks, have both experienced considerable numbers of user-led organisations closing over the last three years. The two organisations decided to raise awareness of the crisis facing user-led organisations by writing a briefing and hosting an action workshop. Shaping Our Lives and NSUN are grateful to the Lankelly Chase Foundation for their support with bringing user-led groups and funding organisations together discuss these issues. Read the briefing document and summary from the action workshop.
