Annick Janson – capturing consumer voices for change

Annick developed a methodology to capture on video stories shared by parents of disabled children during a leadership development programme. The project tested a participative evaluation process to represent the diversity of consumer voices. These stories have now been shared with families, consumers, planners and funders.
