Care Inspectorate Involvement CharterWe believe our work is improved by involving people who use services and their carers. We have a number of innovative ways that people can get involved with us and make sure they have the opportunity to influence our work. 

Our Involvement Strategy ‘Involving You’ outlines our commitment to and action plan for involving people who use care services and informal carers in our work.

Involving You! How the Care Inspectorate involves people who experience care and support in our work 2018-2021

You can also keep up to date with what our volunteers are doing by reading our bi-yearly newsletters.

If you have personal experience of using a service or you have cared for someone close who has used a service there are a number of ways you can get involved with us.   You do not have to have any qualifications. Your personal experience gives you a unique insight. 

Due to the current restrictions, our  usual volunteering opportunities are not available. We are updating our inspection volunteer roles and developing different types of volunteering opportunities.  We thank you for your patience. We are finalising the new opportunities which will be available and will begin to recruit volunteers again soon.
