8 Key Principles of Citizen-Consumer Engagement Voice Choice Control Government User

9 Modernising Government (1999): The Governments aims to...make certain that citizens and business will have choice about how and when to access government services...Public servants must be the agents of changes citizens and businesses want. Open Public Services (2011): The modernisation of public services that the Government is undertaking is driven by This simple idea- that people should be in the driving seat, not politicians and bureaucrats...We are opening public services because we believe that giving people more control over the services they receive....will lead to better public services for all

10 A Drive towards User Control? Public Administration Select Committee (2008): User driven services are those that actively involve the people using them in service design and delivery. They entail drawing upon the expertise, views and perspectives of service users to complement the skills and input of service professionals. User driven services go beyond user consultation or user representation....The idea of user driven services involves public sector staff and users working together to determine what services are provided and how.
