Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) 2022 & Exhibition

You’re invited to our Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) and exhibition which for the first time in three years, will be taking place face to face in Woolwich.

We’ve booked the fabulous Woolwich Works venue for the afternoon of Thursday 13 October – so pop the date in your diary.

The exhibition, from 2pm to 4pm, will give our members the opportunity to find out more about how to get involved with Oxleas, see how we are taking our strategy forward and take part in activities to improve your wellbeing.

At Oxleas, service users, carers and local people are involved in so many ways. Japleen and her Involved team will be on hand to tell you more. If you’re interested, you can find out how you can get involved, there’s lots to choose from.  

Don’t forget to talk to our Patient and Public Involvement leads, Jill, Judy and Marie-France, to find out more about local community organisations in your area that can help and support you or loved ones that you care for.

Are you caring for someone using Oxleas’ services? Come and meet our new Carer and Families Support Network Lead, Janice. She would love to talk to you.

We'll be running focus groups throughout the afternoon - you can share your views on Involve, Zero Delays and Physical health in mental health (mind and body). Focus groups will start from 2.10pm onwards.

There will be lots more to see and do so please do come along.

In the Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) part of the day, from 4pm to 5pm, we will report on how the trust has performed over the previous year. Please see agenda below.
