Measuring the Mountain is an initiative funded by Welsh Government to build a picture of how social care feels for the individuals involved in it by hearing their stories.
As part of their work, Measuring the Mountain held a Citizens’ Jury in September 2018. Over four days, the Jurors explored the question What really matters in social care to individuals in Wales? They listened to evidence, asked questions and compiled a series of recommendations. WIHSC’s Director, Professor Mark Llewellyn was invited to help the jurors understand the context of social care in Wales.
Their report (English) or (Cymraeg) is now available. The jurors’ recommendations highlight important aspects of social care for Welsh Government, and other organisations working in the sector, to ensure positive experiences for people accessing care and support.
The report was drafted by Katie Cooke, Measuring the Mountain Project Manager and Dr Rachel Iredale, Reader in Public Engagement at the University of South Wales, on behalf of the Jury and has been approved by all the Jurors.
