ProjectChange is excited to celebrate Care Day 2022 with the release of our voices Toolkit!
The toolkit is a free, self-led resource designed to empower people to find their voice, and explore how they can use it safely, confidently, and purposefully. It is a resource that empowers people to empower themselves.
Helping people to come together, to talk, and to listen are the three tenets of ProjectChange. Our toolkit is just one part of our journey to build a community that is empowered, self-sustaining, and delivers its own destiny as leaders and changemakers. This is how we are keeping The Promise.
The toolkit was made in partnership with a group of 10 people with a variety of lived experience and perspectives. This has given the toolkit its unique shape, flow and feel.It captured their discussions and ideas, and using this as a framework for the toolkit will allow others to join this journey of discovery.
Chief Executive Adam Bennett said: “The toolkit is our first big step in helping support others to Keep The Promise. It is exactly the type of resource I needed when people started asking me to share my experience, it puts the privacy of individuals at its heart as well also encouraging people to claim what is theirs; their thoughts and opinions.”
It is in this spirit that we created a resource to act as a platform for reflection, confidence building and empowerment; a space that celebrates your own unique position and perspective. After all, those with personal experience of something are always better equipped to drive and lead social change. The more we talk, the more we are empowered, the more we lead change.”
Minister for Children and Young People Clare Haughey said:
“This is a milestone moment for ProjectChange, and I’d like to congratulate them on all they have achieved over the past two years.
It’s been great to hear about what the organisation has been working on – from the development of their participation model, the Me, You and Us training that is supporting people to share their voice, and more recently, the creation of this participation toolkit which will launch on Care Day.
This is all crucial work that will ensure the care community continue to feel supported and reach their full potential.”
We want to hear your feedback on what works well, and what doesn’t, so that we can continue to shape our toolkit to make it as useful and relevant as possible. It will be a live document that will continue to be developed by and with our community.
