Service User Representation and Involvement
Why is Service User Involvement and Representation Important?
Service user involvement is central to our organisation's values and service delivery.
Extending involvement across the mental health economy lies at the heart of the work that we do.
What we love most about BAND is that we owe our very existence to the power that comes from
service users wanting to share their experiences to provide a service that has Recovery at its heart.
BAND has a strong history of service user involvement and we are committed to providing opportunities
for involvement for people that is meaningful, effective and constructive.
What are we offering?
An opportunity to develop new and use existing skills in strategic planning and action.
An opportunity to build confidence and self esteem
An opportunity to enhance your knowledge around identified issues
An opportunity to work with us and other service users to represent the views and experiences of people who use mental health services
An opportunity to contribute to, and be part of, the planning and development of mental health and associated services.
An opportunity to attend meetings and forums that will support effective service user engagement in consultations and the monitoring, evaluation and development of services.
