Why we’re getting in touch: Would you like to get involved with shaping your local mental health services? Fed-up, frustrated with how things are? Or, maybe you’ve had a really helpful experience and would like to share this for the benefit of others? Whatever your experience or views, we’d like to find a way of involving you and working together.
Our service: Brighton & Hove Assessment and Treatment Service provides secondary care community adult mental health services for people of all ages experiencing mental health difficulties, including dementia. Our services are based over two sites in Brighton & Hove; East Brighton Community Mental Health Centre (Brighton General Hospital site) and Hove Polyclinic and Mill View Hospital.
Building on what people have told us so far: We recently met with a group of service users and carers from Brighton & Hove who told us what mattered to them. We’re keen to know whether these things also chime with you and what else is important.
Would you like to be involved in developing future services: Please complete our short survey, which should take no longer than about 5 minutes of your time, please see attached link. Let us know what matters to you personally, and if you would like to get involved, please provide your contact details at the end of the survey.

Brighton Climate Action Network is part of the growing global movement to save our natural world and future generations from the potentially devastating impacts of human induced climate change. In the build up to the ‘COP-21’ UN climate talks in Paris in December our ‘Time to Act Week’ will take place in Brighton from the 15th – 21st November. The events taking place during this week will provide information and connection for action to face this global challenge.
The week will culminate on 21st November at 10 am with a “Time to Act” Conference at Brighton’s Synergy Centre, in West Street, launched by Caroline Lucas MP and involving representatives from other political parties and a variety of campaign groups. This will be followed by a “Celebration for Action” benefit gig with local bands, including ‘King Porter Stomp’
If you would like to participate with your own event, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Or please could you add to your event listings or give a mention on your social channels.
We’ll be serving up 5,000 lunches made entirely out of food that would otherwise have been wasted. A delicious solution to the problem of food waste.
The event is being organised by a group of local organisations including Brighton & Hove Food Partnership, Brighton & Hove City Council, Fareshare Brighton, Food Waste Collective, Real Junk Food Project, Love Activists Brighton, University of Sussex Students’ Union and University of Brighton with guidance and support from Feedback. The event will shine a light on global and regional food waste issues.
Join us for a fabulous free lunch, cookery demos by awesome chefs, and inspiring talks from food campaigners.

The recently launched petition has just been signed by the 100th citizen of Brighton and Hove.
Thank you to all who have signed so far.
The petition calls upon the Council to support neighbourhood policing and to confirm its support for Local Action Teams (LATS), the voice of the community holding the police to account and determining our local community priorities. PLEASE SUPPORT AND SHARE WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
For it to be discussed at the full Council Meeting on 22 October it requires the support of at least 1,250 local citizens.
Sign up at http://present.brighton-hove.gov.uk/mgEPetitionDisplay.aspx?ID=479&RPID=14895520&HPID=14895520
We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to express support for ‘Neighbourhood Policing’ and to oppose decisions by the Police and Crime Commissioner, together with senior officers of the Sussex Police, to reduce the number of police officers delivering local policing. Brighton & Hove City Council is also requested to confirm its policy on, and commitment to, Local Action Teams (LATs) as initially agreed by Cabinet on 21 May 2009.
Katy Bourne, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner has confirmed there will be 700 fewer police officers delivering local policing over the next 5 years, and a further 300 posts elsewhere in the force will go. In particular, Sussex will lose more Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs). 58 (out of 347) have already left and there are another 69 to go. The police often don’t have the time to attend Local Action Team meetings and accountability to local communities is being lost. A significant change in policy is being implemented without consultation and against the clear wishes and needs of local citizens.

New members are always needed and you are urged to attend your local meeting. It need not be the case that you have a particular concern and it could just be that you feel you may have something to offer. Why not come along to your next meeting and find out more.
The next meeting of the Bevendean LAT will take place at Church Hall, Norwich Drive on Monday the 20th April at 6.30pm.
