“To work collaboratively on service changes, strategies and service improvement projects. We will work together in an open, honest and respectful way, listen to and understand others feedback, experiences and ideas including local communities, and value their ideas, skills and knowledge.”

Read our Annual Involvement, Experience, Volunteering and Carers Report, 2020-2021

We are committed to involving people in our work and using their experiences and their views to improve our services and most importantly, improve people’s lives.

We have volunteers who support people in our services, thousands of people who share their experience and feedback with us each year through Your Feedback Matters and Care Opinion and a growing public membership – not to mention many people who draw upon their lived experience to take up paid roles within the Trust.

On this section of the site, we’ve gathered resources and useful links on how to work collaboratively with others, including information on our Collaborative Model. We also have information on some of our current involvement projects including meeting notes.
