Our staff networks are safe, supportive and professional spaces, offering staff an opportunity to connect with others, make friends, share experiences, challenge organisational practices and influence policy.

All our networks welcome all staff, regardless of characteristics or lived experience.

The Trust Board works closely with the networks and members are regularly invited to share their experiences.
