Barriers to Access
The Barriers to Access Project demonstrates CCHP’s commitment to inclusion and co-design.
We believe in enabling communities to promote service improvement through shared learning and shared experience.
We are working with:
Autism Independence a Bristol based charity working to transform the lives of children with Autism. Their workshop provides lived experience of accessing services as a Somali and as an African Caribbean parent.
Autism Independence made the film 'Yusuf can't talk' which gives an initial insight. Watch it here.
Freedom is Off The Record’s Gender and Sexuality Social Action Group for 13-25 year olds and will bring you the experience of LGBTQ young people.
In 2020/2021 we hope to run these popular workshops again. Here is some of the feedback:
"Really interesting data and hearing/listening to thoughts and perspectives of young people and parents from BAME communities."
"Really thought provoking and lots to take away in terms of small changes to make in approaches to role and trying to influence wider service. Really well guided and facilitated discussions.”
“Hearing first hand experiences and seeing how passionate they are about this topic; made the workshop very engaging.”
“Hearing first hand experiences from Nura and Rebecca and seeing how passionate they are about this topic; made the workshop very engaging.”
“Excellent - welcoming, relaxed, interactive. Accessible. Helpful to have lived experience shared.”
“Certainly more aware of how to support/talk about gender identity with young people. Given me more confidence in approaching young people.”
