The Edinburgh & Lothian Involvement Network gives people with support needs a chance to share ideas and experiences about being involved in decisions that affect their lives.

If you are interested in attending these online meetings please get in touch with Robin.

We talk about the  Charter for Involvement and putting it into practice. We are part of the National Involvement Network.

Meetings are usually held 6 times a year at the Norton Park Centre in Edinburgh, and we talk about different things we are involved in with our organisations and in the wider community.

About Us

“We want to be involved in Speaking up Groups”


What we do

We raise awareness of the Charter for Involvement and promote inclusion of people who get additional support. We give each other mutual support and learn from each other. We also review local and national policies and make recommendations. Some of us get involved in campaigning and some of us have delivered training and given presentations on the Charter for Involvement. Sometimes organisations ask us for advice.


We want to take part in national and local campaigns”
