Welcome

We’re the Involvement, Experience and Volunteering Team. We’re a dedicated team of people in Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust who work in partnership with our service users, carers, volunteers, members and staff. We expect all staff working for Nottinghamshire Healthcare to show a commitment to involving people, listening and responding to people’s experiences and supporting volunteering. 

This site hosts our blog, information about volunteering and getting involved, how we work with feedback and experience, support for carers and resources for working collaboratively.
