Carers’ Involvement and Participation


We have an independent group of carers who promote and facilitate carer involvement in Somerset’s mental health services.

  • This group meets every two months and:
  • Actively seeks to include carers in the planning, provision and evaluation of services
  • Provides opportunities to share experiences with other people in a similar position
  • Gathers carers’ views on services and service development
  • Influences changes in services
  • Helps to improve the quality of life for the carer
  • Provides representatives to sit on planning groups in Somerset Partnership and the Primary Care Trust

If you would like further information please contact the Users’ and Carers’ Development Manager on 01749 836606 / 07774 207458
