Service User Involvement Group
We have a service user involvement group that regularly meets and holds events across the community throughout the year. These groups give you the opportunity to speak with us about any issues or ideas that you have on your treatment pathways and developing our services.
- Would you like to learn new skills?
- Would you like to have your say in how services are run?
- Any ideas about how we could do things differently?
We welcome all service users who are accessing support services in Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea or Hammersmith & Fulham.
When? The last Wednesday of every month
Where? Lytton Community Hall, North End Crescent, London W14 8TD
We have a regular service user newsletter called TRIP (Together Recovery Is Possible)
To find out more about the opportunity to join this group, speak to your key worker or email us 3boroughsSUI@turning-point.co.uk
Peer mentor volunteering
We really welcome working with those in recovery and who want to utilise their experiences and skills within the treatment system. We believe that peer mentors offer a unique perspective in assisting others to obtain and maintain recovery. Turning Point offers a level two accredited course for Peer Mentors. This is a 10 week programme, which looks at a wide variety of topics such as communication, safeguarding, positive relationships, professional boundaries and transferable skills. The course incorporates a huge range of information and skills based workshops. Helping others in their recovery is really rewarding and a great goal to aim for! Read more about peer mentor volunteering in our Peer Mentor FAQs and our peer mentor and mentee stories.
