Regular activities at Walsall S.U.E.

Monday

  • 10:00AM to 12:30PM
    This is a group of service users who meet to read and comment on information leaflets produiced by Walsall Council, Dudley Walsall Mental Health Trust and other organisations before they are published. 
     The purpose of this group is to help make sure the leaflets are clear and understandable. Feedback from this group leads to the leaflets being improved - they are more clear, easier to read and better for everyone.
    This group improves communication between Walsall Council and Walsall's disabled people.
    This group only meets when it has something to discuss so if you want to join or give it a try, ring us and register your interest, and you will be invited to the next one
