Join our National Steering Group
Service user leadership empowers people to make choices that affect their lives, lead their journey to wellbeing on their own terms and to collectively influence and improve services, organisations and society.
The National Service User Steering Group (NSG) is a group of people with lived experience of mental distress, who work alongside our Senior Leadership Team, Trustees, Staff, Service Users’ and Volunteers to provide Together with a lived experience perspective to strategic discussions and decisions. They use varying ways to hear the collective voice of people who experience mental distress, to gather information that can influence and inform the organisation. For example, visiting Together services, speaking with service users from external networks, sharing their own knowledge and experiences.
The NSG share this information with Together via NSG meetings, email and telephone conversations, supported by members of Together’s Service User Leadership Team.
To find out more about Together’s approach, values and work – do have a look at our annual review, our 2019-2024 Strategy which includes our definitions of service user leadership and lived experience or the service user leadership section of our website.
