Membership


Everyone's joining...
You can too!

Join our NHS Foundation Trust to influence the development of key services.

We provide mental health and learning disability services for children, adults and older people.

All you have to do is register as a Member of the Trust.
Becoming a member allows you to choose your level of involvement to suit your circumstances.

Show you care by joining a caring organisation

Join Us
It’s important to belong!

You may experience, live with, or know someone who is affected by mental health issues or a learning disability. Mental ill health is more common than asthma. One in four people in the UK experience a mental health problem, and a quarter of all drugs prescribed by the NHS are for mental health problems.

Our mental health is central to our overall health and well-being, because how we think and feel has a strong impact on our physical health.  If you are not affected, there is a chance that someone you know may be.

Join us and help make our services more responsive.

Membership helps to support a range of activities which are vital to the development of local services for the future, for you and your family, your friends and your local community.

Our members are local people, including service users and carers. They have already elected governors to represent them at the highest level of the Trust.


Enjoy the benefits of belonging:

  • News from HPFT - twice a year
  • Information about the role of members and governors
  • Key documents about our plans to improve the quality of our services  
  • Advance information about events and public meetings
  • You can stand for election to the Council of Governors

And much more..

Membership is open to everyone over the age of 14, and there is no upper age limit.

You can help us
By becoming a member of the Foundation Trust, you can make a real difference to the way we work. Membership is free and you can choose how involved you want to be.
