Staying Close (Portsmouth Social Care) and STaRT (Solent CAMHS) team


As part of the co-production programme, the Staying Close (Portsmouth Social Care) and STaRT (Solent CAMHS) team wanted to give young people in their care the freedom to redesign their living accommodation. They worked with young people to explore how they could redesign their indoor and outdoor spaces; making suggestions and proposing ideas to improve the layout and appearance of the garden and their bedrooms.


One of the ideas suggested was to provide paint and allow the young people to personalise their rooms in order to make them feel more ‘their own’. This proposal is currently being explored by the estates manager and the team. The young people have valued being included in decision making and as a result, are now attending team meetings to provide their 'lived experience' and to help deal with the challenges faced by the estates team. 

It is not any kind of hierarchy, it's we are all in this together, we want to work on this problem together and we're going to find a solution together.
