Become a member
We truly value the support and insight our members give us and we are encouraging more people to join our growing membership
Our members enable us to strengthen our bond with our local communities and stakeholders assisting us to truly understand our local health economy and what our services mean for you. People become members for many reasons; some join because they are interested in supporting a local service which helps people in their local community, others may experience, live with, or know someone who is affected by mental and physical health issues or have a learning disability and some because they want greater involvement the Trust.
