Service user involvement

Overview

We are working with our residents to develop the Resident Voice in Adult Social Care and Health,  looking at how we can work together and ensure the voices of our residents, who are often experts by experience, are at the heart of the design, development, and delivery of Adult Social Care and Health in Croydon.

If you are interested in being part of this, please email Talk2SocialCare@Croydon.gov.uk.  

Croydon Adult Social Services User Panel (CASSUP)

The Croydon Adult Social Services User Panel (CASSUP) is a group of service users, carers of service users and Croydon residents who have a strong commitment to improving the way things are done. The panel meets six times a year and works in partnership with decision makers. They represent the views of the community to improve service delivery and access to social care services.

Could you be a panel member?

  • Are you a resident in the borough of Croydon, a user of Croydon adult social care services, or a carer of a service user, or have an active interest in improving adult social care services in Croydon? 
  • Would you like to help to ensure that residents with support needs live and thrive with as much opportunity, independence and control as everyone else in Croydon?  
  • Do you enjoy meeting new people and working with a team to solve problems and overcome barriers? 
  • Would you like the opportunity to improve your knowledge and develop life and work skills?
  • Can you commit to at least 6 meetings per year?

If you have answered yes to these questions, you could be just the person we’re looking for. The Croydon Adult Social Services User Panel (CASSUP) is a group of Croydon residents, service users and carers of service users who work with officers and partners to produce policies and plans for Croydon. Panel members are encouraged to express their views to influence decision making for adult social care in Croydon.
