Borders Risk and Capacity Co-design Team

The Borders Risk and Capacity Co-design Team comprised Borders Council SDS Lead, SDS Workforce Development Officer, Learning Disability Team Leader, frontline social worker and Adult Protection Co-ordinator, three providers, an advocate and a user group representative.

It was the only Pilotlight co-design team that did not include people who access support and carers. Conversely, it was the only co-design team that included advocacy and a user support group. We tried to compensate for the lack of ‘user voice’ on the team by initial research interviews with carers and members of the Borders ‘Checking it Out’ group and then testing ideas with the latter group. We also tested prototype products widely with people who deliver and access support.
