Service user groups

Would you like to meet other people who have had similar experiences to you? Want to use your experiences to help make improvements to our services?

Our service user groups are a great opportunity to do just that.

We have a range of service user groups that you can get involved in to share your views and make sure your voice is heard.

The groups are an invaluable way for us to gather important feedback on our services, help make decisions and share details about what’s going on in the Trust.

You can find out more about the range of groups you can get involved in below.

Brains of somewhere

Come along to this friendly peer support group for brain injury survivors!

Brains of Somewhere was founded in May 2017 and brings together people recovering from brain injuries to share their experiences and pool their knowledge, in a supportive atmosphere. Family and assistants are also welcome.
