The review will be stakeholder driven and evidence led. It is crucial that people have an opportunity to make their views known; therefore, there will be a full public consultation. Each stage of the process will have to create an engagement strategy that not only is transparent but affords the opportunity to gather as wide-ranging views as possible. The aim will be to engage people with real experiences—service users, carers and professionals—as well as those with a more academic interest. The third sector, in particular, will be key to making this happen, as it has a wealth of knowledge and understanding concerning the impact of the legislation on people’s lives.
