Involvement Register

Involvement Register

The Involvement Register is a great way for both service users and carers to become involved with us in the planning and development of services. There are a wide variety of activities to get involved in, for example, helping to deliver training, sitting on interview panels or by offering your views and opinions at committees and groups. Many service users and carers have told us how much they have enjoyed contributing through the Involvement Register and how it has improved their confidence and self-esteem.

The Involvement Register Guidelines provide details on all aspects of the Involvement Register. Please note: All those applying to be an Involvement Register member will need to have a DBS certificate before they can be signed up and begin undertaking rewarded activity. On occasion, because of what is in the DBS, a member might be restricted to certain activities and on very rare occasion where there is a potential safeguarding issue may not be able to join the register.

If you're interested in joining the Register please see the guide to joining the involvement register page.

Current Involvement Register opportunities

Current Involvement Register members can contact us to find out more about the following:

  • An opportunity has arisen to take part in assessing the cleanliness and condition of our wards and other care environments. You will become part of a team ensuring these environments support clinical care by assessing how well privacy and dignity is afforded to people, the general building maintenance and the quality of the food being served to patients.

  • An opportunity has arisen to get involved in a project set-up group for SIM London. SIM London is a project overseeing the development of a partnership with the police to better support people who are regularly detained under section 136 of the mental health act.

 

Other opportunities, information and newsletters

National Survivor User Network is facilitating a focus group in London on Friday 23rd February for BME mental health service users who have been detained under the Mental Health Act. Please see the attached flyer for full details, and please do circulate among your contacts  

 

The focus group will inform the current Review of the Mental Health Act which could lead to changes in mental health law. It is particularly important that BME mental health service users get their voice heard in view of their high rates of detention under the Act.

The focus group takes place near Oxford Circus in central London at 10.45am (finishing 5pm) on Friday 23 February. There will be refreshments and lunch available. A £15 honorarium will be given to recognise people's input, plus reasonable travel costs.

 

For further details and to register, contact Raza Griffiths, NSUN London Co-ordinator, on raza.griffiths@nsun.org.uk or ring 07737 647 445.
