National Service User Forum
The National Service User Forum is an opportunity for people who have direct experience of multiple and complex needs including mental health and other problems and have had contact with the criminal justice system to come together and help us to influence policy and design and improve services. Forum members come from a range of relevant backgrounds and organisations and from different areas of the country. (Click here for membership criteria).
Forum members get involved in activities such as research, policy consultations, delivering training, contributing to conferences and raising awareness of the issues they face. (Click here for more information on Forum activities). We welcome enquiries from policy makers and organisations working in the areas of criminal justice, homelessness, mental health or drugs and alcohol who are interested in consulting or involving our Service User Forum members.
We provide opportunities for Forum members to participate in training courses such as Training to Train, Research Skills, Influencing Policy and others, to support their personal development and effective involvement in the Forum.
National Service User Forum meetings are held four times a year. The next meetings are xxxxxxxx
