The future of User-led Organisations

Source By: National Survivor User Network

This briefing sets out the current crisis being experienced by User Led Organisations (ULOs) and seeks to stimulate discussion leading to positive action to ensure their sustainability. Shaping Our Lives and the National Survivor User Network (NSUN), two key national disabled people’s and service user networks, have worked to identify key areas of concern:
1. The loss of knowledge, peer support opportunities and advocacy through the disappearance of ULOs.
2. The social and wellbeing impacts of no collective voice for service users and resulting power imbalances.
3. The unique and valued role of ULOs in the individual self-empowerment and involvement of service users.
4. The particular capacity of ULOs to support diverse involvement and to challenge the exclusion of BME and other marginalised groups.
5. Funding trends that exclude or severely disadvantage ULOs.
