The Inquiry brought together over 100 experts, young people included, to find better ways of supporting people who face severe and multiple disadvantage. Relationships is a dominant theme of the resulting book, both between young people and those that can help and between public systems and civil society. A way of thinking called relate without pity is proposed as the basis for system reform. The conversation started by the Inquiry will continue until the end of 2016 with a series of events to explore the application of the ideas.
Dartington has facilitated the Inquiry using its Common Language methods. It has prepared some of the publications and manages the blogspace www.dartington.org.uk/relatewithoutpity
The work has been undertaken in partnership with the LankellyChase Foundation. The Inquiry was a collaboration involving over 30 local authorities and voluntary organisations.
