The ethical case for involving service users in service planning and delivery, and in research and evaluation, has been made on several grounds. One important set of reasons is that such involvement is ethical, as well as effective. This chapter reviews the ethical case for service user involvement, as well as how this involvement operates at various levels. Whether a consumerist or a more democratic or empowering approach is taken as the framework for such involvement, there are increasing principle-based justifications for it.
