Become an Expert by Experience
Experts by Experience (EbyE) are people with experience of using services, either a service user or a carer/advocate, who are involved in the work of Trust to ensure that we develop services in ways that meet the needs of those who use them.
Our involvement opportunities are designed to provide an opportunity for people with a 'lived experience' to participate in service development while gaining skills or experience as they move forward on their recovery journey.
We have many different opportunities to involve Experts by Experience in the work of the Trust and people can be involved as little or as much as they choose.
If you would like to find out more about being involved as an Expert by Experience, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Shelly Carr – Engagement and Involvement Officer on 01925 662835.

Why is our Experts by Experience programme so important?
At WHH we are committed to putting the involvement and experience of people using our services, their families, friends and carers at the heart of anything that we do. Our ‘Working with People and Communities Strategy 2022-25’ outlines how we will work together, as an organisation and in our communities, to put our patients' voice at the forefront of our work to develop services.
Working in this way means that we deliver compassionate and responsive care that is aligned to people’s feedback and will mean that our organisational decisions and processes are enriched and enhanced by the inclusion of a lived experience perspective.
