National Steering Group
The National Steering Group (NSG) is a group of volunteers who use their lived experience to offer strategic input and oversight to Together, supporting us to drive forward our ambitions and the direction of service user leadership.
NSG will carry out their remit by using a variety of ways to hear the collective voice of people with 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 regular meetings either digitally, at our National Office in London, email and telephone conversations, supported by members of the Service User Leadership Team.
To provide further details on the group, current member Mark Dale describes how he came to be part of it in the video below which he recorded for International Volunteers Day 2021:
