The service users representative forum was set up in 2009 by a group of service users who had been through the treatment programme and wanted to help the service users of the city have a more active say in how treatment was delivered, to provide an advocacy service and to sign post service users to the relevant agencies as well as giving service users a voice that could be heard.
Our vision is to provide a friendly, fun, lively, professional and all inclusive forum run by service users for service users.
