Join this free, practical event sharing learning on how you can make the design process for services more inclusive and accessible.

This event is particularly relevant to third, independent and public sectors as well as the wider public.

People should be at the centre of the service design process, involved from start (ideation) to finish (implementation) and beyond (evaluation).

The third sector in particular engages with very diverse communities, often with very specific needs around communication and participation. Therefore its services have to be developed with people, for people.

So we all think about making our services accessible, but what about the design process itself? Are we meaningfully involving people in our workshops, consultations and events? Are our tools, methods and communications inclusive, accessible and welcoming to everyone? And finally, is this happening consistently across sectors and boundaries?

Join us for a day of lightning talks, practical learning and open discussion where we will unpack these questions together. We will explore how we might work within the third sector and beyond to ensure that our service design approaches and processes are suitable, inclusive and empowering for all.

Fringe by Design is organised by OneTeamGov Scotland (this link will take you away from our website) and the ALLIANCE as an experiment in bringing people together from across sectors, communities and change disciplines to explore what is happening and what is possible when we work together and across boundaries to increase and deepen participation in public service design and delivery?
