One of the most exciting uses of Whose Shoes?® can be where people who use services and / or family carers lead their own Whose Shoes?® sessions as peer support for other service users and carers

"The impact Whose Shoes?® can have re developing User and Carer knowledge and understanding about the Personalisation Agenda is fantastic - and with the additional social outcomes it has for partnership and peer learning - its phenomenal. People absorb more when they are having a good time!!! "
