The current political agenda requires service users' views to be incorporated into the design of health and social care services (Department of Health, 2006). Services are assessed by the quality of the outcomes they provide for users. Frontline managers are responsible for gathering service user views on their needs. Whose views should be taken into account? How do managers gather views? This unit helps you consider ways of getting feedback from service users, and shows the inclusive approac

3.7 Ascribed identity

So far we have been concerned with ways in which we define ourselves. How other people or society at large might define you could be different from the way you define yourself. This points to an important distinction between ‘self identity’ or ‘identification’, which you have just considered, and ‘ascribed identity’, which we turn to next.

Sue Lyle interviewed children from a school in Swansea that had run a ‘mixed ability’ and ‘mixed gender’ project designed to improve pupils’ literacy. The tasks in the project were designed so that pupils were collaboratively involved with the activities and texts being studied.
