NSUA 2020 Service User Events Team Appointed

In August we launched our search for this year’s team of service users to assist planning the National Service User Awards 2020. Now going into its 8th year the National Service User Awards, which are sponsored by Cygnet, is an annual event that celebrates the achievements of service users at mental health, autism and learning disability services nationwide.

The events team are an important driving force behind the awards and represent all kinds of services and backgrounds. This year we had 25 applications which were all so fantastic that each one has been offered a position within the team, the applications were from the following services:

  • Beacon House
  • Cygnet Hospital Beckton
  • Cygnet Hospital Bierley
  • Cygnet Hospital Bury
  • Cygnet Hospital Derby
  • Cygnet Manor
  • Hollyhurst
  • Redlands
  • Oxley Woodhouse

Everyone in the team has been invited to an initial team building day on Wednesday 16th October, where they will be able to meet the group, ask any questions and most importantly start to make decisions ahead of the awards! Following this they will have Regional Meetings in the North, Midlands and South where they will continue planning and completing tasks together.

There are plenty of ways to get involved with the National Service user Awards, so for anyone who might have missed this opportunity, please email [email protected] for information on our Service User Judging Panel and Entertainment slots.

Congratulations to our brilliant 2020 team!
