Launch of the Carer's Toolkit

The Carer's Toolkit is hosted by the Quality Network for Forensic Mental Health Services in partnership with NHS England, UCLAN (The University of Central Lancashire) and the Carer’s Toolkit Steering Group. This event will involve engagement with carers and enabling them to become involved in adult secure mental health services, which is an important priority in ensuring positive experiences and best outcomes.

This toolkit has been developed with the aim of providing clear information to carers, service users, providers and commissioners regarding how carers of people in adult secure services should be engaged and enabled to be involved. The toolkit was co-produced with a steering-group involving a wide range of experiences and expertise, most importantly carers themselves.


Date of Event: 27 March 2018


Time: 10:30 - 16:00 (final timetable is to be confirmed)


Location: The Royal College of Psychiatrists, 21 Prescot Street, E1 8BB


If you would like to register to attend this event, please complete this form by 21 February 2018. We are expecting a lot of interest and want to ensure a good mix of attendees. We will therefore be confirming if you have a place by 28 February 2018.

Patient  Engagement and Involvement  Event

The Patient Engagement and Involvement Event will be an interactive day dedicated to patients in forensic mental health services. We would like to see patients accompany staff to the event, as it will be a great opportunity  for individual personal development, and for patients to feel inspired and hopeful by  what they  see.

There will also be an opportunity for patients to present their artwork at the event. However, you will need to ensure you can transport any artwork to and from the venue yourself, and we cannot be liable to any damages to the artwork during its transportation.
