Service User Network (SUN) meetings are held monthly and there is a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. There is usually a guest speaker, often invited at the request of members. The group works closely with the Trust in order to help improve services and are consulted regularly on new Trust policies and procedures. People are encouraged to share their own stories, if they are able. This has proven to be a positive experience for everyone and helps to unite the group.

SUN members can bring their ideas or concerns about any Trust services and they will be listened to. Issues raised will then be taken to Trust governance meetings for comment and action. SUN ensures that the member’s recommendations are valued and acted upon, and that regular feedback on these recommendations is provided.

SUN helps empower and inspire people, giving them hope and insight, which helps with their continued personal recovery and wellbeing.
