Service User Council

The Service User Council (SUC) has a really important role in Buckinghamshire Mind. The SUC is a group of people who use our services and have decided to get more involved in how we work. The Council can be part of the running of Buckinghamshire Mind in many ways, so here are just some of them.

Recruitment – Members of the SUC who are interested can have training in interviewing and then help us choose our staff. Making sure we get the best staff we can, with the right attitudes and skills, is critical to ensuring that our services can meet people’s needs.

Membership – Our members are the people who elect our Board of Trustees by voting at the Annual General Meeting and have the final say on the running of Buckinghamshire Mind. Members of the Service User Council can become Members of Buckinghamshire Mind without paying the usual fee if they wish to.

Planning – We want to get Service Users involved in planning to make our services better. The Service User Council has an important advisory role in reviewing how our services operate and working out how we can make them
better. We are committed to continuously improving the quality of our services and ensuring that they can meet the needs of the community.
