On December 4th 2020, the Jurors from Measuring the Mountain’s Online Citizens’ Jury met with the Deputy Minister for Health and Social Services, Julie Morgan MS to chat about the Jury, their involvement and the recommendations that were made.

The event was a closed session that enabled the Jurors and the Deputy Minister to talk more about what it meant to be involved in a process like the Citizens’ Jury, what they learnt and how the recommendations came about.

It was a great opportunity to talk more about the benefits of involving people in policy making discussions and to look in more detail at the impact some of the recommendations could have if implemented.

For the second part of the morning, once the Deputy Minister had said her farewells, the Jurors were joined by members of MtM’s Steering Group to further discuss the recommendations and the work of the Jury.  It was a fantastic starting point to looking more at implementing the recommendations and discussing how positive change can be brought about in the delivery of care and support services in Wales.

The recommendations made by the Jurors include the establishing of a Disabled People’s Commissioner, creating a task force to look at Universal Basic Income, ensuring better representation across the care and support sector and improving recognition of, and support for, unpaid carers.

Collectively they illustrate core priorities and a range of ways to bring about positive change.
