People who have attended our advisory groups in the past report that they found them productive, enjoyable, and worthwhile, as they felt their ideas were taken on board.
“I find it very rewarding to attend the advisory group as a former service user. It’s good to be able to give my perspective on how this already excellent service (in my experience), can be improved. The group gives me a safe space to make suggestions on how iCope could perhaps try new things to help service users to continue to build on their recovery following treatment.”
“The group seemed quite small at my first meeting but the welcome was very warm and I could see that all contributions were deemed important. Of course, being new I felt unable to contribute much, but I resolved to attend the next meeting and I can honestly say that over the past fifteen months or so I have seen a great number of positive developments within the group.”
