TAKE ME TO THE SURVEY

Help us build a picture of how social care feels for the individuals involved in it.

During 2018 we want to collect 2000 stories from people involved in social care, so that we can understand the impact of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014. To do this, we want to work with you and other people and organisations across Wales who support, and engage with, people who receive social care, and people who are carers.

By working with organisations like yours, or ones you know, we will create a network of Listeners who will support people to share their stories, enabling everyone who has a story to share, to be able to.

We will share what we find out from these stories with Welsh Government, social care professionals, participants and supporters of the project, and people in Wales.  From the stories, we will take key issues and examine them at a Citizens’ Jury at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea, from September 24th to 27th. 

If you are part of an organisation, if you want to be a Listener, if you have a story to share, or you know others who do, get involved in Measuring the Mountain and help us understand what social care is really like for the people involved in it.

 

 

Organisations

I work for an organisation that supports people

We want to work with organisations like yours across Wales, both to let people know about the project and to help us create a network of Listeners. We would like your involvement so that we hear from every local authority, from all ages and all communities, and so that anyone who would like their story shared is able to make that happen.

Measuring the Mountain will share its findings with Welsh Government, social care professionals, participants and, through our website and presentations, with people and organisations in Wales.

If your organisation works with people, in any capacity, we’d love to hear from you.


I want to be a Listener and help others share their story

We are looking for individuals who can chat to people in their community and support them to share their experiences of social care. Listeners will play a vital role in ensuring everyone who has a story to share is able to, and so help Measuring the Mountain reach the many diverse communities across Wales.

Most Listeners will be part of an organisation that supports people already – you can be a member of staff or a volunteer, and volunteers can join Spice’s Time Credit network and earn Time Credits for the stories they collect.

If you know people who have a story to share, please get involved in the project.

I have a story to share

We want to hear from anyone who has recent experience (within the last 12 months) of social care in Wales - this could mean receiving care and support or being a carer (maybe both). We want to hear the stories that you would tell your neighbor, your friend or your family – they can be long or short and they can be about a big experience or a very small one.

The stories that are shared with us will build a picture of how social care feels for the individuals involved in it so we can better understand the impact of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.

You can share your story with us yourself, or you can chat to you one of the Listeners involved in the project, and they’ll help you share it.
