"Helping People in The Men's Group"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Intellectual Developmental Disabilities /Learning Disability Services – Community (County)

(as a service user),

In the Men's Group I have been helping people and talking to others. I help in the kitchen, washing and drying the pots. I have done some cooking. Hot dogs, cous cous. We do healthy eating, men's personal hygiene. I like meeting people. Thank you.

Coming to the group means I am not at home on my tablet and X Box. After a while I get bored so coming here means I don't get as bored.

Staff are very helpful. Paul H and Paul Care freindly and I know they listen and will get a solution and fix it.

I feel different since coming to the group rather than being at home. I have improved my pool skills!

Response from Paul Hunt, Occupational Therapy Technical Instructor., Specialist Services Directorate., Intellectual Disabilities Directorate.

Dear Bart

Thank you for your feedback and honesty, the information you provide information helps us to plan and deliver future services. We are pleased to hear you have found the men’s group beneficial and we thank you for all the hard work and support you have provided to others. Paul and I will pass on your feedback to our manages and will do everything we can to keep supporting you now that the group has finished. You should feel very proud of the work you have accomplished and it is clear to me that without your positivity, and that of your fellow members, the group would not have worked so well. We are happy to hear that you have been able to develop your cooking skills and have been able to help you meet new people and offer you an alternative to sitting at home. Keep up all your hard work.

Best wishes
