People Participation

Participation is "working together to improve the experiences and outcomes of our services." People Participation involves bringing together service users, carers, families, staff and our wider communities as equal partners working to shape and deliver outstanding mental health services for the benefit of everyone. We know that when care and services are designed and delivered in collaboration with people who use them, there will be better outcomes for all.

Feedback events and current projects

Help shape our services and the experiences of people who use them by joining our projects and feedback events. Current opportunities are provided below.

Developing our Eating Disorders service for young people

We have an opportunity for young people, their parents or carers to provide suggestions and feedback to support us to develop a new model of care and improvement to our Eating Disorders Lighthouse Day Treatment Centre for children and young people across Norfolk and surrounding areas.

This is to support appropriate development and expansion of the service which offers intensive support while helping the children and young people return home each evening in the hope to prevent hospital admission. The expansion aims to include virtual support as part of the treatment programme.

Shoky Carter, Specialist Services Project Manager, is supporting on this work and is the point of contact for interest.  We are holding two engagement events if you would like to attend, please email: shoky.carter@nsft.nhs.uk who will register you and send you the joining details.

  • Tuesday 4 June, 17:00 to 18:00 via Microsoft Teams
  • Wednesday 12 June, 17:00 to 18:00 at The Lighthouse Centre, Hellesdon Hospital, Norwich.
