Taking part in the citizens assembly has been a real eye opener and I have learned a lot. If I was asked to take part again I definitely would as I've really enjoyed every aspect of the weekends.

There is no one thing that has surprised me the most, there have been so many different things - from meeting such a diverse group of different backgrounds to the opinions and views that they have.

I really hope all of our discussion and findings are taken seriously and acted upon positively and pro-actively. Social care cannot be set aside any longer, its a very important aspect of so many people's lives.
