Authentic Voice Dundee

Dundee City Council’s Protecting People team have identified the need to develop a robust trauma informed approach to ensure there are safe and meaningful processes in place for people with lived experience of trauma to contribute and influence decision making within local local multi-agency governance and strategic planning arrangements across Public Protection Partnerships. Stakeholders have sought to review the inclusion of people with lived experience of trauma in strategic forums, in partnership with the Authentic Voice project.

The Authentic Voice Project is a national project aiming to support local authorities and other community planning organisations to develop the knowledge, confidence, and tools they need to embed survivor voices and lived experience into local systems and service design processes. Dundee have chosen to partner with Authentic Voice as the pilot area for their leadership workstream focused on embedding lived experience into strategic forums across Scotland.
