This page provides details on volunteering, how to become a member of the Trust, our Council of Governors and People Participation (PP).

People Participation is about helping our service users and their carers to have a say in how we run the Trust. But more than that, it is also about working together so that we can offer a better service for all.

Governors represent the views of their members and work in partnership with the Trust at a strategic level to help plan and shape its services.

Volunteering roles available within services across the Trust. Volunteering is a great way to develop your skills and experience to support your career aspirations and to do something meaningful and interesting in your free time to help others.
