The National Survivor User Network connects people, communicates with people, and works to influence things for the better. All of our work is led by people with lived experience of mental distress, ill-health or trauma, and we directly employ people who have experience of discrimination and disadvantage. Our user-led nature sets us apart from other organisations in the field, giving us unique authenticity and insight. You can read all about our mission, vision, and aims here.

Each year we send over 100 ebulletins, sharing news, views and opportunities to thousands of members. We try to ensure that the direct voice of people with lived experience is heard at policy level. We distribute small grants to user-led groups and we advocate for equitable resourcing for grassroots activities. We are a small charity with low overheads but high activity.

By supporting us through a donation, you can help us continue or expand our work and reach as many people as possible through our national network. You make a one-off or recurring donation through NowDonate here:
