Ratcliffe consultancy has long been involved, working directly with people with a lived experience, so co production, working with experts with experience, consultation work is the back bone of all the work we deliver. “Nothing about us without us” is not just a great quote, but one that we try to live and work by everyday. We are really proud to work with organisations that support or led on co-production, share funding and ensure that co production is meaningful. This means that the people involved are valued both in a monetary sense as well as given recognition of the work that they produce. To date we have trained experts so that they can co deliver training, carry out compliance visits, interview staff as well as present at conferences, run workshops and peer support groups.
