Service User Involvement
What is the service?
This service ensures that people can contribute to the on-going design, development and delivery of the Mental Health Recovery & Wellbeing Services across the Borough. People will be able to both provide and receive peer support in community based settings across Tower Hamlets.
This service will also support a variety of Service User led groups and Forums in the Borough, that give people the chance to have their voice heard.
