Our campaigns are based on the points prioritised in our Members' Manifesto. All of our work aims to take action to improve things for people who experience distress, discrimination and disadvantage.
All of our work takes forward the intentions set out in our Members’ Manifesto. We aim to connect, communicate, inform and influence by facilitating ‘real’ involvement and co-production, collective action and mutual support.
Our research is led by people with experience of distress, discrimination and disadvantage - we’re not just involved! We want to ensure that our messages are seen as credible and valid and result in recommendations that make a difference.
We are a ‘user led’ network of over 4500 individual and group members. Join us to find out what's happening across England to improve the experiences of people who need services and support when in distress. We aim to connect, inform and influence.
The Covid-19 crisis has meant that NSUN is needed more than ever. Help us keep our members informed and connected, and their voices heard.
If you want your voice heard or would like to support our work then there are many ways to get involved with the network. Whether it’s supporting a campaign or a project your valuable experience will help strengthen the network.
Our members have a lot to say so why don’t you connect and find out what the most current issues and concerns are and join the debate. Your individual voice is critical in creating a direct, independent and collective national voice.
