Our West Kent Listens project is part of the Kent and Medway listens campaign to gather the opinions and voices from people all over West Kent. We want to hear how you are feeling and what your experience of the recent pandemic and related restrictions was like. We also want to gather any suggestions or thoughts on how services can be improved and what more could be offered to help mental wellbeing in West Kent. We’d especially like to hear from you if you haven’t previously taken part in public consultation before. If you’d like some support in speaking up, please let us know how we can help you.
We are working in partnership with Kent County Council on this project to improve and develop mental health services across Kent. Therefore, we are asking members of the public to share their experiences and stories with us to shape decisions going forward that accurately reflect the needs of our communities.
Our project will:
Make recommendations for future action on mental health services based on real life experiences and the needs of the diverse and seldom heard communities across Kent and Medway.
Work with communities to co-create solutions and empower groups to become leaders in their own right.
To get your voice heard, please get in touch with us via email@example.com to arrange a one-to-one interview, either face-to-face or via telephone so that we can get in contact with you. We are also able to come and visit you or your group locally.
Additionally, we have a quick and easy online survey that can be filled out to share your views and tell us what matters to your community.
If you would like to participate in this survey by 31st December 2021, you could be in with a chance of winning one of 10 vouchers for £100. Choose from a Sainsburys, Amazon, Boots or Argos voucher.
To be entered, you must fill in your name and contact information at the bottom of the form so that we are able to get in touch with you. Winners will be informed in the first week of January, prizes will be sent by the second week of January. One entry per person.
