Annual Members' Meeting

Annual Members’ Meeting 2016

 

This year our Annual Members’ Meeting took place on Wednesday 28 September at the Sheffield United Football Club Conference facility on John Street.  As in previous years, it was a well-attended and bustling event.

It began with the Market Place which provided an excellent opportunity to find out about new initiatives and developments taking place throughout the Trust including an opportunity to give feedback on the Trust’s strategy for the years to come.  In addition, the Care Quality Commission was there to ask people their views of the Trust ahead of inspecting the Trust and its services in November.

A new addition to proceedings this year was the Sheffield Music Project.  The group comprises mainly service users with some staff and they serenaded the event with songs from the Beatles to Van Morrison.
