All Roses in the Ocean capacity-building workshops are lived experience informed, designed and delivered by professional facilitators who also have a personal lived experience of suicide.

Using the Building a Lived Experience Informed and Inclusive Culture: a practical guide for organisations resource as the framework for this workshop we offer professionals working in suicide prevention an opportunity to explore how they can better integrate lived experience knowledge and expertise across all aspects of their organisation’s work.

This workshop will provide an overview of the contemporary authorising environment in which the need for lived experience informed and inclusive systems change is located, as well as the evidence base for partnering with people with lived experience to achieve effective and sustainable change. It will also outline the core values and principles that ground best practice lived experience partnership and inclusion and spotlight examples of what good looks like.

Participants will then engage in individual and group activities to map the existing strengths and opportunities to strengthen lived experience partnership and inclusion within their own organisations and develop an action plan that can provide a practical roadmap to creating and maintaining organisational change.
