ESOW Testimonials

‘’I would not hesitate to involve EBEs in our work again and genuinely hope the opportunity arises soon. Theirs is a unique perspective on the world and to have a group of people trained and supported to share that perspective is frankly gold dust to anyone who is genuinely interested in public and social research and policy development.’’
Andy Bulman
‘’We needed people with a story to tell, who understood that the story was bigger than themselves and who were willing to share that experience. The ESOW participants were a key part of the commission, we felt enriched by having them with us. If we were to run another commission we would get in touch with yourselves and other organisations in our contacts who work in the lived experience sector’’

‘’The opportunity to hear directly from people who are/have lived in challenging circumstances is extremely powerful and valuable. Just to say thank you to Becky, Richard and Reuben for sharing so openly their life experiences and giving us some valuable insight into how we can improve our services.’’
