NSFT remains the only mental health trust in the country ever to be placed in special measures. It is rated inadequate and in special measures for an astonishing second time now. The voices of services users, carers and front line staff are not heard at NSFT and people are being let down.
We usually meet on the first Tuesday of the month. This month, because of our recent meeting with the Care Quality Commission, our meeting begins at 6.30 p.m. on Tuesday 9th October 2018 at the Vauxhall Centre, Norwich NR2 2SA.
Please check the day before attending as the venue may have to change.
There is a map below. There is parking outside or close by. Join us and find out more about our campaign and the crisis in mental health services. The friendly porter will show you the way if you can’t find us.
We are now in our fifth year of campaigning for decent mental health services in Norfolk and Suffolk. We’ve achieved a lot but there is even more to do. Please do come along and show your support: it makes such a difference.
Perhaps you felt inspired by our March for Mental Health or the Panorama to join our fight for decent mental health services? Hundreds of people marched to demand better mental health services and service users, carers, the bereaved and NHS staff told us that they were comforted and uplifted by the presence of so many people who cared. If you can’t get to the meeting but would like to help, do please get in touch.
You don’t have to be a committee member or a helper to come along, just a campaign supporter. Do please join us if you would like to help us, whether you are a service user, a carer, a member of staff, or a concerned member of the public. It would be very nice to meet you. If you feel you would like to chat with or meet a campaign member informally before attending a meeting, please get in touch – people who feel anxious about new situations or the bereaved have found this particularly useful in the past. We will do all we can to support and include you.
