Involvement Representatives at NELFT

At NELFT we firmly believe that people who use our services and those that support them, have a key role in helping us improve the services we currently provide and in helping us shape the design and delivery of future services.

NELFT offers a range of paid voluntary opportunities for those who use our community health and /or mental health services, including child health services, to share their views, ideas and expertise.

We invest a lot in equality and diversity making sure the workforce is as representative as the patients we look after this gives me a sense of belonging and is one of the reasons I love being at NELFT so much.
