Papworth Trust's Forum is a meeting for people who use our services. The Forum gives people a chance to tell Papworth Trust about what is important to them, hear about what is happening at Papworth Trust and share ideas to improve the services they use.
The latest Forum was on Wednesday 9 May. Everyone who came to the Forum wrote this blog together to tell other people about it.
These are some of the things we talked about at the Forum:
We had the opportunity to bounce ideas off each other and talked about lots of different issues to do with Papworth Trust, including:
We also talked about things we want to change:
We asked people who they met at the Forum and they told us:
"New service user group representatives."
"Old and new friends."
"Lots of people from different places."
"I met and chatted to a Trustee and Trustee User Reps."
"We got to meet the Trustee User Representatives and staff - that was good."
These are some of the ideas we came up with at the Forum:
There was lots of information for Trustee User Representatives to deal with!
We asked people what they liked about the day and they said:
"We got to ask queries and found out things we didn't know about."
"Nice, friendly people."
"It was interesting."
"It helps service users."
"Everyone was involved."
"I also liked talking in groups."
"Drawings to help things make sense."
"We liked the acting."
"I liked learning about the new changes."
"Nice venue, Age UK."
"The lunch, especially the cakes!"
"I would like to come again."
We asked people what they did not like and they told us:
"Sometimes I could not hear what other people were saying."
"Everything was good."
"We didn't run quite to time but that can be a good thing if something good comes of it."
