Help us make changes for the better
If you live in one of our homes and/or receive the care and support services we provide, you can help us to realise our vision of to improve the lives of our customers by checking we’re taking the right approach, tracking our performance and influencing the decisions we make.
Joining one of our groups is a great way of developing new and existing skills, gaining experience and meeting new people, as well as helping to improve the services you receive from us.
We want to make these groups accessible to everyone, and so we can provide transport, where required – or cover travel expenses for customers who have their own transport.
