Expert by Lived Experience projects

Below is a list of projects we have planned in 2024.

Further details will be added once we have them.

Empowered Employees

This is the next phase of a project in which some Barnwood Circle members were involved in 2023. Eight employers in the county have developed action plans to make their workplaces and recruitment processes more accessible. This project will see Barnwood Circle members reviewing those action plans and giving feedback to the employers.

A group of Experts by Lived Experience have already been recruited for this work and we look forward to sharing details of the project soon.

Annual Members Event

This is an opportunity for members of Barnwood Circle to come together, share experiences of project work, and help shape Barnwood’s work for 2025.

There will be 6 in-person sessions: 29 March, 13 May, 27 May, 10 June, week commencing 24 June (event), 2 July.
