Becoming a member of the Trust allows you to have your say in matters affecting the Trust and allows you to influence plans for the future development of the Trust and its services. It also gives you an opportunity to help us to challenge the stigma and discrimination that people with mental health difficulties and learning disabilities can sometimes face.
We strive to ensure that our membership is representative of the people who we care for, who work for us and those who live in the communities that we serve.
Our membership is made up of service users, carers and local people with an interest in the Trust and the services we provide. It also includes our staff and representatives from partner organisations from the local area.
Membership is free! How much you choose to take part as a member is up to you. You may just want to receive our electronic magazine and vote for someone to represent you on our Council of Governors. Or you may want to take a more active and involved role by attending events and meetings, or maybe even stand as a governor yourself! Whichever level of participation you choose gives you a bigger say in what we do, and really makes your views count.
We currently have over 11500 public members, and this number is growing.
