Tuesday, May 9, 2017
I have taken over from Jack Watkins as Service User Involvement Officer, here at Cardiff and Vale Action on Mental Health and will be in post until the end of July 2017.
I have a wide range of experience of developing service user involvement in the supported housing and social housing sector and hope to use my knowledge to consider ways to widen the involvement of service users in the development and delivery of mental health services in Cardiff and Vale.
I have a good understanding of the challenges faced by organisations to support user involvement and the barriers service users face in participating, but I can also help you to consider different ways to involve people, using ideas and good practice developed with the supported housing sector.
I would be happy to meet with individuals, teams or attend involvement activities with service users.
I am able to:
- Deliver a short session on Good Practice in Service User Involvement
- Develop other short sessions based on your needs (that could be delivered across a number of organisations)
- Help you review your current involvement activities and plan future activities (and outcomes)
- Facilitate engagement activities with service users
I am also keen capture and share good practice from your service user involvement, so please let me know about your activities and outcomes.
If you would like to meet with me, please contact me at CAVAMH
