Pat Ayres, one of ²gether’s Public Governors for the Cotswolds, said: “The event is being organised for members and non-members of the Trust to hear more about our work across the Cotswolds and Gloucestershire to support people with mental illnesses, learning disabilities and other conditions, such as dementia.
“It is being held during Eating Disorders Awareness Week, so we can also help raise awareness of the impact an eating disorder can have and the treatment and support the Trust and charities such as B-eat provide.
Accomplished biographer, journalist and broadcaster Penny Junor is speaking at the event in her role as Patron of B-eat Gloucestershire.
Penny said: “The NHS and B-eat work together closely in Gloucestershire to provide support for people with eating disorders.
“During eating disorder awareness week, I’m really looking forward to joining this important NHS event and helping to raise further awareness of the local help available.”
The event will feature presentations from the Trust Board as well as opportunities to speak with representatives from local services, ask questions of our Board and Governors provide feedback and have a say in helping to shape local services.
Rod Whiteley, ²gether’s other Public Governor for the Cotswold area, said: “There will be a number of information stands at the event so it will be a good opportunity to meet up and talk with members of local care organisations and charities.”
“Everyone is welcome and we look forward to meeting as many people as possible to rekindle old friendships and make new ones”.
