Service Satisfaction Results

We are proud to announce the results after receiving service user feedback at the end of 2018.

Every year we give our service users a chance to tell us how we’re doing. Have they been satisfied with the services they’ve received? Had their experience resulted in positive outcomes? What do they think we could do to improve?

The results

From the 313 people who responded to our survey, the following results were:

  • 94% said that they have been satisfied with the service(s) they have received.
  • 95% said that they have experienced some kind of improvement or stabilisation in their mental health since accessing Coventry and Warwickshire Mind services.
  • A large proportion of service users believe they now know where to go for further support (80%) and 82% have access to information to help them with their mental wellbeing.
  • 83% of responders also agreed that they have received quality care and support and that they were listened to and respected (85%) throughout their involvement with CW Mind.

We also received positive comments:

“Having someone to understand me and given the support to make decisions. It has changed the way i think about a lot of stuff.” (Rugby/North Warwickshire Hub)

Kind, considerate and caring. Taught me how to like me again.” (Counselling)

“Very, very, supportive, compassionate and non-judgemental.” (Pathfinder/Grow)

Receiving feedback not only enables us to reflect on what we have, together with service users, achieved but also enables us to plan for the future to ensure that our support is tailored to the needs of individuals and helps individuals to achieve their goals and ambitions. I would like to also take this opportunity to thank our dedicated team of staff, volunteers and peer supporters who work tirelessly to ensure that we provide quality support to all. I would also like to thank the commissioners, funders and partner organisations with whom we work closely.
We trust that 2019 will be another year of expanding our reach and ensuring that “No one should have to face a mental health problem alone”.”

Steven Hill, CEO and Quality Lead of Coventry and Warwickshire Mind

Peer Support with CW Mind

Between 2015 and 2017 Coventry and Warwickshire Mind took part in a pilot research programme alongside eight other Mind charities across England.

The aim was help improve the lives of people experiencing mental health problems across England by increasing the availability and quality of peer support.

One of the elements the research focused on was the core values of effective peer support.

Now we’re back!

After the completion of the Side by Side Peer Support Pilot in 2017 national Mind produced the research findings from the nine local Mind Peer Support Hubs and developed the Peer Support Toolkit.

Next steps

We are now looking to continue this work by reconnecting with established peer support groups across Coventry and Warwickshire, and by supporting new groups to develop.

We will be offering free training, based on the Side by Side Peer Support in Your Community Toolkit, for anyone involved in peer support, or anyone who wants to help start a group.

We also have a small grant funding opportunity of up to £250 (per group) to help groups develop, and we will be helping peers to organise an event to further promote peer support in the community and make connections with each other.

If you want to:

  • get involved in the training,
  • talk to us about your group,
  • use this website to promote your group,
  • or you are an organisation that’s thinking about supporting a peer group…

Terms of Grants

  1. Our seed funding grants are for peer support groups that support people with their mental health. Peer support is when people use their own experiences to help each other. It can happen on a one to one basis, online or in a group. It may involve a range of activities such as crafts, walking or meeting for coffee. Peer support is sometimes referred to group support, self-help or community groups.
  2. Our small grants are designed to be spent within 6-12 months.
  3. Groups who receive funds will become involved in our evaluation of peer support. This will involve letting us know how many people come to your group, completing short monthly questionnaire and if you are happy to, talking to our researchers 1to1 about the group. We do this so we can show that groups like yours improve the lives of your community. 
  4. All funds must be spent on your group and are not for personal spending.
