Halton’s local specialist mental health and learning disability services provider is holding its annual meeting on Tuesday, July 15.

Halton residents are invited to hear a comprehensive update on the past year’s activities of 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust .

Trust chairman Berhard Pilkington said: “We value, encourage and recognise everyone’s contribution and feedback’ is one of our five trust values.

“This is a great opportunity for you to meet your local governor; feed back on the service improvements you’d like to see and help us to recognise the contributions staff, service users, carers and members made to this trust over the past 12 months.

“I am personally looking forward to revisiting and celebrating all the local, regional and national award successes we have enjoyed for shining examples of best practice.”

The trust’s annual report, quality accounts and financial accounts will be presented in Orford Jubilee Hub, Jubilee Way, Warrington, at 10.30am.

Anyone, including non-members, is welcome to attend a marketplace showcasing the trust’s services and the voluntary sector from 9.45am to 10.30am and from 12 noon till 12.30pm.

Refreshments will be provided and members can reclaim their travel expenses on the day.

A mental health and wellbeing ‘Ignite Your Life’ workshop will be held on Wednesday, July 9, at Walton Hall and Gardens in Warrington.

Arts and crafts exhibitions, African drumming, complimentary therapies, healthy eating and sports activities are among the attractions.
