Every year we issue our annual report in Easy Read format. Take a look at this years’ here.
This year was our fifth anniversary and the theme of the annual report was ‘Making an impact’. Every change we’ve helped to bring about in health and social care started with a story from someone who uses services.
Examples of our impact include:
- Our work with disabled people on accessibility led to GP practices who needed assistance in implementing the Accessible Information Standard getting the communication support they needed.
- Our research on mental health led to better ways of involving service users in planned changes at St Pancras Hospital.
- We developed new partnerships including with William Ellis School and LaSWAP sixth form consortium. This resulted in young people getting the chance to creatively express their health concerns in three videos
- We followed up our partnership work with Independent Age, results were plentiful including a full evaluation report being published and a round table discussion with stakeholders.
We met with local people at events, seminars and meetings. Every voice counts and we aim to get input from every section of our diverse community. We built on relationships with our local organisations including the LGBT+ community, young people and the homeless.
Our volunteer numbers increased. They helped us to improve accessibility, increase our social media profile and also to man stalls at local festivals over the summer. We’re grateful for their support, volunteers are the crucial to our work.
