Healthy Connections – Evaluation of Clarendon Medical Wellbeing Pilot for People Living with Obesity
Adult Learning Disability Transition Team
Co-Production is about working in equal partnership with our service users and carers.
The Adult Learning Disability Transition Team in the Northern Sector entered a Regional Dragon’s Den Competition. We identified that transition from school can cause young adults with learning disabilities some worries and anxieties. We engaged with young people who had made the transition and we all felt as a group that a digital medium might be the best format to present our ideas. This decision was made in partnership with service users and staff.
After presenting to the Dragon’s in Portadown we were delighted to be one of three winning teams. We worked in partnership with young adults who had already made the transition from school to day opportunities to produce the final piece. We co-produced this piece with a local Day Opportunity provider, Tuned In Project who specialise in creative digital media and everyone involved reported it to be an enjoyable process and feedback has been very positive.

Personal and Public Involvement (PPI) – How Can I Get Involved?
The Involve Hub is a central resource for the public, service users, carers and staff as it showcases current and completed involvement projects in the Western Trust and projects which are currently live.
The Hub gives staff the ability to advertise involvement opportunities and find people interested in being involved. Also staff can learn from other projects that have been undertaken and better understand how to carry out effective involvement.
For the general public, service users and carers, the Hub is a way to find out how to become part of specific involvement events or projects happening across the Trust. It is also a way to find out how the Trust involves people and the impact they can have as part of the development of services.
For further information on how to get involved or to post an involvement opportunity, please email Martin.McCrory@westerntrust.hscni.net or Mairead.Taggart@westerntrust.hscni.net or complete the form below.
