Service User Involvement
Newport Mind is committed to including people who use our services in all discussions about how the organisation develops. Everybody’s unique view is important to us. We aim to enable people who use our services to contribute to shaping how these services are delivered and how they might change in the future.
It is important to us that we help people to do things for themselves (as opposed to us doing things for them). In line with this we feel it is crucial that people have a say and have meaningful input into how our services are delivered.
If you already use Newport Mind services please speak to a member of staff for more information about how you can get involved.
