We will only be sending this out to people who requested the information and as soon as we hear responses from CAB & DWP we can update the website.
OUR TIME TO TALK
Our Time To Talk is a service user group for people who use mental health services in Wiltshire. At a recent meeting, the group had a chance to talk to Annie Paddock (Wiltshire Council Commissioning Manager) and staff from Alabaré Include. The group listened to what progress has been made since winning the contract to provide day services in 2010 and feedback regarding issues raised during previous Our Time To Talk meetings. There is generally at least one service user representative at each meeting supported by Lorraine and Amber (WSUN development outreach workers) to ensure that group issues are reported to Commissioning or Service Managers.
A representative from Citizens Advice Bureaux will be attending the next meeting in July to talk about Welfare Reforms that may affect people with mental health issues.
