User Voice is a charity that is led and delivered by people who have been in prison or on probation. User Voice works nationally to enable criminal justice services to listen to and act on their service users through its Council model.

In this free interactive seminar delegates heard from all those who have collaborated on the West Yorkshire CRC Service User Council including senior CRC staff, User Voice staff and most importantly the Council members. Each discussed their experiences and gave their perspective of the benefits and challenges for both themselves and for commissioners.
