Alzheimers Society - Service User Review Panel

 

York Alzheimer’s Society are delighted to announce that they are offering a new group called Service User Review Panel in York for people living with dementia.

 

Service User Review Panels (known as SURPs) are small groups of up to 8 people with dementia who are involved in influencing issues beyond their own care, both for the Society and for external organisations. SURP members meet regularly for a time limited period to discuss and review a range of topics that may include:

 

• organisational tools, such as forms and questionnaires,

• informational materials such as leaflets and posters,

• priorities for service or strategic development, such as Dementia Friendly Communities

 

SURPS are facilitated by a member of staff in a way that prioritises the needs, choices and views of panel members. They are a way for service users to become more involved in the work of the Society and other organisations working to improve the lives of people with dementia at both local and national levels.

 

York Alzheimer’s Society are looking for people living with dementia to join our group which we hope to set up in the next few weeks. Please help promote this group to anyone you feel would be interested?

 

If you would be interested to become part of the panel, or know of someone who would be, please contact 01904 567701 to express an interest and our dementia support workers will be in contact with you.

 

With kind regards

 

Mrs Alison Wrigglesworth
