People Participation - Mental Health Transformation

East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT) is committed to enabling people who use our services and their carers to have a say in how the Trust is run. We know that by working together, we can make services better for all. This is where People Participation comes in.

People Participation connects service users and carers with opportunities to contribute to the development and improvement of ELFT services. We aim to support you to share your views and lived experience, and to help you learn new skills along the way. We will always champion your voice.

Participation opportunities include things like:

  • attending focus groups to share your experiences and views
  • joining planning meetings or workshops alongside staff to help plan, develop or review services and frameworks
  • co-designing and co-delivering training for staff
  • joining interview panels for the recruitment of ELFT staff
