How do I get involved?
Service User Support
We believe that the services we offer will be better if the people who use them help to shape them. Many service users also find it useful to have a chance to meet with others who have experienced similar difficulties.
If you are interested in getting involved in helping other service users, there are several ways that you can do this:
- Giving us feedback on the service
- Selecting new staff - Training and support is available to service users who want to get involved by being on the interview panel for new staff.
- Contributing to research - You can do this either by agreeing to take part in a study or becoming part of a research team to help decide on how a piece of research is conducted
- Contributing to the planning and development of services - For example, this might mean coming along to a meeting to discuss a new proposal, commenting on suggestions or information leaflets, or joining a committee or the Early Intervention Service User involvement Group.
- Helping to support other people who use the service - This might be through sharing your experiences with another person individually or helping to lead an activity group.
