Trust seeks young members to share views


The Trust is recruiting young members who are passionate about mental health and learning disability services, treatment and support to share their views.

Becoming a member enables young people to be heard where it counts, to share their views, to influence decision making and to be elected as a Governor.

Young people from the age of 11 can become a member and vote, then from the age of 16 can become a Governor. Elections are held annually in January.

Governors undertake key duties at the Council of Governors meeting and are provided with a mentor from other elected Governors in the Trust.

Alexis Ritchie, equality and involvement project officer, said: “We are really excited to grow young people’s voices in the future development and delivery of our services across South West Yorkshire. This opportunity also gives fantastic insight for young people to understand governance and leadership if they are considering a career with the NHS.”

More information on the election process and how to sign up can be found on our website.

To find out more, please email and one of the team can contact you or arrange for one of our Governors to visit.
