Some of the opportunities CBUG supports are one-off activities like tendering panels, and focus groups but we also have some which involve a more regular commitment. These include:
The Side by Side Network
The User-Led Involvement Network for C&I NHS Trust.
In 2016 The Side-by-Side Network was created to give people who use mental health services the opportunity to communicate their experiences. This is our chance to have our say and to make a real difference, understand what works and what doesn’t, and use this knowledge to constantly improve services. The network is user-led, and works in coproduction with C&I staff. You can sign up to the mailing list here: https://tinyurl.com/joinourside You can also follow us on Twitter @Byyrside. Tweets are by service users, and do not necessarily represent the positions of C&I NHS Trust, CBUG or The Advocacy Project. https://www.candi.nhs.uk/sidebyside
