  • Give feedback on services and developments

What membership involves

Members can have their say on future developments at the trust. If you want to get more involved you can provide comments and feedback or even stand as a governor.

You don’t have to give any of your time unless you want to – it’s about showing your support and, if you want to, giving us your views.
