"Service In The Community Social Inclusion And Wellbeing Service"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health (inpatient)

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

Story submitted on behalf of The Sonic Doctors

I rehearse in a band called The Sonic Doctors at Mansfield Road Baptist Church at the bottom Sherwood Rise on a weekly basis.

What we do is very much social inclusion we rehearse and gig in the community.

The Trust currently pays for this service but we have been recently told that this is to stop. We are all on benefits and do not exactly have much money between us.

We would really appreciate if this funding could continue. We have recently recorded and E. P. which we are going to produce and use to promote ourselves. Music really does help our overall wellbeing.
