In these groups we talk about our service.

  • You tell us what is good about our service
  • You tell us what we can change about our service to make it better
  • You tell us what is missing in our service

Most groups meet monthly and work in their local Community Learning Disability Team making easy read documents, giving feedback on services and presenting their work within the Trust.

Here are some examples of activities that service user groups have been involved in:

  • Interviewing new members of staff for their local learning disability community teams.
  • Contributing to quality improvement projects.
  • Working alongside other organisations (such as the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists) towards projects.
  • Hosting events for Learning Disability Awareness Week. As part of this, groups have raised money for local learning disability schools and day services, as well as create posters and design badges.

  • Designing and reviewing easy read information.
  • Sharing their thoughts and ideas on social media.
  • Attended awards events.

We have these groups because we want to make our service the best it can be and we need your help to do this.

Contact your local team for more information. 

At the start of 2019, we had two workshops to talk about how we could improve our service. We invited service users, carers, their families and our staff to find out what you all thought.
