The committee was created to ensure that we achieve co-production across all levels of our organisation.
It is made up of people who are currently using our services or who have with lived experience of mental ill health, substance abuse or domestic violence, with nominees from the Group Leadership Team in attendance. The committee meets four times a year, and the meetings are chaired by one of our Non-Executive Directors of the Group Board.
The purpose of the committee is to ensure that our key objectives outlined in our Working Together Strategy are being delivered, and all decisions the committee make are fed back to our Group Board. The committee also looks at the year ahead to plan future actions and work alongside the Communications and Marketing team to share what is happening with the wider organisation.
All of the people we support have the opportunity to join our Working Together Committee. Additionally, there are opportunities available for individuals using our services and volunteers with lived experience to be supported to attend our Group Board meetings to observe proceedings and ask questions.
