Measuring the Mountain held its online Citizens’ Jury a couple of weeks ago.  The event saw 14 members of the public (the Jurors) meet online to listen to over 20 speakers, ask them questions and then, in closed sessions, they identified a series of recommendations.  These recommendations will be shared later in the autumn.

The event was a great success – the speakers were fantastic, thoughtful, considered and candid, and they shared a huge amount of information with the jurors who really rose to the occasion, asking insightful and provocative questions. All of the sessions with the speakers are available to view by visiting and then click on ‘playlists’ for the sessions from each day.

From the very beginning, the jurors were drawn to big ideas, talking to the speakers about transformation and revolution.  These themes returned throughout the week with questions about how revolution can be brought about, systems overhauled and good practice shared and implemented.

Over the course of the week they heard from, and questioned, senior leaders within social care, unpaid carers, people who use services, people leading and delivering excellent work and people involved in bringing about change.  Using what they had heard, on the final day, in closed sessions, the Jurors outlined a series of recommendations which will be shared later in the autumn.

Throughout the week, trust, relationships and the sharing of power were recurrent themes.
