Every 3 months Mind holds an Information Forum meeting at our offices in Stratford where we discuss the information that is due to be updated soon.
These meetings are a chance for us to talk through the user feedback we have received on this topic and what sorts of changes to the information we need to make to ensure it is up-to-date, relevant and as useful to people as possible.
At our next meeting we will be discussing:
If you have experience of one or more of these, we'd love to hear from you!
We pay £100 plus your travel, and up to £7 in lunch expenses for the day. We can also book your travel up for you if you would prefer this, so you don’t need to worry about organising or paying for anything in advance.
To take part, the following skills are useful:
When you fill out the application form, you can tell us how you meet this description. You may want to keep a copy of this page open so you can look at it when filling out the application form.
You must be over 18 to apply.
We welcome applications from a diverse range of people, and are happy to talk about support we can offer to help you participate.
"Although, admittedly, a little scary at first I was soon put at ease by the genuine warmth, compassion and willingness to understand by those I addressed. I feel proud that I have been able to give a little back in return for all the help and support I have received over the years."
Just click 'Apply now' to fill out a quick application form.
You need to apply by Monday 3rd February at 9am, and we will get back to you within the week or so following this to let you know whether you have been selected.
If there have been a lot of applications and we haven't been able to select you this time, there are lots of other ways you can get involved in our work, which we will direct you towards.
Any personal information you give us will be used solely for the purpose of selecting an expert by experience. All applications will be held securely by Mind and safely deleted within 2 months of the closing deadline. We will only share your information with other teams within Mind if you have given us permission.
If you have any questions, you can email [email protected]. We try to get back to everyone as soon as possible but if we receive a lot of queries sometimes this can take up to 5 working days.
