What is a Citizens’ Jury?
Citizens’ Juries are a well-established method of engaging with people about a policy issue or on a topic of public importance. They bring together a group of people for a number of days who examine a question, listen to information about that question from different perspectives, discuss the issues and arrive at a set of recommendations. These recommendations are then shared with key policy-makers and the public. MtM conducted its first Citizens’ Jury in September 2018 – you can read more about that below.
We are currently recruiting people interested in being a Juror, and we are looking for people who use care and support services, or are a carer, to make short ‘Day in the Life of’ videos to show as part of the Jury. Find out more here.
Citizens’ Jury 2020
MtM will host its second Citizens’ Jury in September and we are looking for people to take part as Jurors. Owing to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, our Jury will take place virtually with all activities conducted online. The final Jurors will be selected in early July.
Building on the work of the 2018 Citizens’ Jury, we will set a question that reflects key themes identified as part of that process, as well as key themes to emerge from the stories the project is currently gathering.
We are looking for individuals aged 18 and up who would like to be Jurors. We want the Jury to reflect the population of Wales and are seeking a diverse pool of interested individuals. The final Jurors will be selected in July.
You do not need any prior knowledge or experience of social care in Wales – all of the information you need will be provided to you as part of the process.
We are also looking for people who use care and support services, or are a carer, to make short ‘Day in the Life of’ videos to show as part of the Jury. Find out more here.
As a Juror you will
Taking place as a virtual event
Work with 12 to 15 other participants to answer a question that we will set you at the start of the process. This question will relate to social care and will arise from the stories people have been sharing.
The days of the Jury will be carefully structured to allow you and the other Jurors to understand all sides of the question we pose. We will share this programme with you closer to the time and support you throughout.
You and the other Jurors, supported by a Facilitator, will question Witnesses, consider the evidence they present and then draw conclusions and make your recommendations.
We want to be a Juror to be interesting and enjoyable – you’ll be part of an exciting process that will help inform the debate about social care.
