Supporting self-management of well-being through our All-Age Wellbeing Portal

The All Age Wellbeing Portal empowers and enables the self-management of mental wellbeing for its users, while providing relevant information, guidance and support from the Trust and other partner organisations. It can be accessed by anyone, and they do not need to be service users of the Trust.

Ask the Board – our unique commitment to openness

Members of the public and staff are very welcome to attend every public board.

Our Trust Board meetings are held online via Microsoft Teams – a link to enable anyone to join and participate will appear on our “Upcoming Board Meetings” page before each meeting, together with the full set of Board papers by the end of the week before the Board meeting takes place.

And we have also made it easy for anyone to ask a question in advance of our public Trust Board meeting and have it answered live.
