2 Opportunities Address issues raised by people using services – and carers – in relation to feeling they can get ‘lost in the system’ Address experiences of individuals using services that they are expected to fit into the different cultures of organisations Address experiences of individuals that services work in silos rather than collaboratively Address experiences of feeling excluded from discussions and decisions made about them
