“We have commissioned and would recommend Changing Our Lives because of how thorough and comprehensive the approach to rights-based advocacy and person-centred planning has been and continues to be for the clients who need it most. There is a great level of creativity, dedication, and breadth of thinking and consideration that goes into the work with our client, and I feel that the organisation is able to constructively challenge and query aspects of care and planning that might otherwise not be queried, whilst still maintaining relationships with the key systems involved. Finally, the creativity that has gone into the future-focused person-centred planning is really inspiring and engaging.”
