Focus Group to look at new campaign

 

Our advocacy Focus Group will meet early next month to work on a new campaign. It will be on proposed changes to the Mental Health Act, which should be in place from next year.

We aim to campaign on making sure people’s rights are upheld once they become law. To help with that, we would welcome your ideas on how to do this. For this group, we will have a guest speaker who knows about the Mental Health Act to take part.

Take part

The Focus Group will meet on Monday 6th December from 2pm to 3pm on Zoom. If you would like to attend in person instead, we will book a room for you to join in and take part.

It is open to people living in Leeds, including anyone who has either accessed any of our services or worked with us before. If you want to take part, please email us at involvement@advonet.org.uk. Then, we will send on the details for you to join in closer to the date.
