Hi everyone, my name is Lucy and I am the Membership Officer for the Trust. I work in the Involvement Team and it is my job to communicate with members of the Trust. I am the first point of contact for anyone wishing to become a member, and for any membership enquiries. The Trust currently has 9700 public members and 8700 staff members.
Now that we are a Foundation Trust, we are what’s known as a ‘membership organisation’, which means we are accountable to our members and the communities who use our services, as well as their carers, family and friends.
We want members to be actively involved to help us continue to improve services. Members can be involved in the Trust in many different ways, from just receiving information, right through to standing for election as a Governor Member.
We recently held an election for 9 new Governor members. Thank you to all the members who voted.
If you are reading this and are not already a member, but would like to receive more information about Trust membership, please contact me on 0800 012 1623 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information can also be found here.
