Involvement FAQs

What is Personal and Public Involvement (PPI)

Personal and Public Involvement is a term used to describe the active involvement of service users, carers and the public in the commissioning, design, delivery and evaluation of Health and Social Care services, in ways that are relevant to them.

Are there any resources to help me get involved?

Yes, there are a range of resources available to help with involvement. There is an e-learning training programme in place to help understand what PPI is, and how getting involved will make a difference to Health and Social Care.

Service users and carers

Will I be able to claim out of pocket expenses?

Yes. Service users, carers and stakeholders who have agreed to become involved and participate in our involvement opportunities, such as meetings, engagement events, focus groups and training events can be reimbursed for out of pocket expenses.  This includes travel costs and the payment of replacement care. More details are available in the Regional Guidelines and Procedures for the Reimbursement of Expenses.  Please contact Lynda Elliott on 028 2766 1453 or email
