NEL Citizen's Panel - Your Area Needs you - and you don’t need to leave the sofa to help

Source By:  East London Health and Care Partnership

A local online panel is being set up to hear the views of people across our boroughs on local health and care topics.

Your area needs you – and you don’t need to leave the sofa to help

We believe it’s important that local people are involved shaping local health and care services. Your views and opinions matter, and help us to make decisions that work for local people.

 East London Health and Care Partnership are looking for wide mix of people to join our new online Citizens’ Panel. Using your phone or computer, at a time that suits you, you’ll be able to tell us your thoughts on our ideas or proposals, or give feedback or suggestions on health and care issues or topics through short surveys.

No time? No problem! Being part of the panel is completely hassle-free and can be done from the sofa, or on your commute. We know your time is valuable so we expect you’ll only need to give 20 minutes of your time every four to six weeks. We’ll also always let you know the results of your involvement and how your feedback will be used.

By taking part, not only are you getting your voice heard, you’re also giving back to others in your community as together we improve and shape our health and care services. You don’t need to use or know about health or care services to be involved, we want to hear from everyone.

Sign up for this interesting and rewarding opportunity and help make a real difference to NHS and social care in your area and across north east London.

We are looking for mental health peer mentors

Source By: The Advocacy Project

We have extended the deadline for peer mentor applications. We are looking for people with lived experience of mental illness who would like to be trained as peer mentors and offer one to one support to someone experiencing mental illness. The peer mentor will work with the mentee towards a goal that is of importance to them over 6-8 sessions, for example attending a local sports group.

This is a paid opportunity for peer mentors and may offer a pathway to employment or other opportunities. Applicants will be invited to an informal interview and training will take place in September.

Earlier on in the summer, a small group of peer mentors completed sessions with their first mentees, feedback included:

  • ·         “I found the mentoring experience a positive one – I have managed to develop a number of key skills.”
  • ·          “Went well-is being confident, to be think positive, for being careful”
  • ·         “I think my highlight so far was last week my mentee said she was feeling better after her session that was a very rewarding experience”
  • ·         “I think the whole project  has a been a rewarding experience, it has helped me cope better in peoples company, seeing others in their situation makes me see how far I have come along.”
  • ·         “It has helped me to grabble with my demons and build my confidence and social contact relating to this project it has been very helpful.”

If you know of anyone that may be  interested in the role, please pass them the attached role description, application form and equal opportunities form. The peer mentoring scheme is being coordinated by my colleague Sophie Hudson, Sophie can be contacted on 020 3960 7910 or at If people need support completing the application form, they can talk to Sophie. We would really appreciate it if you could pass on the attached poster or add the poster to notice boards/ community boards.
