Together for Short Lives, the umbrella organisation for children's hospices across the UK, are working with Choice Support in the central region of England to recruit parents, carers and young people with first-hand experience of children’s palliative care to join Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections.
Each inspection team includes people who have experience of using these type of services directly or care for someone using these services.
These inspectors are known as Experts by Experience (ExE) and provide a unique insight in assessing how well services provide care and treatment.
Young people need to be aged between 16 and 25 years and not in full education.
If chosen as an Expert by Experience, young people can bring a carer to inspections to support them in the role.
