Young People’s Council

Read more

“This group is run fortnightly and is optional as it runs outside the unit’s therapeutic programme. The aim of the group is to facilitate direct action, through increased user involvement in all aspects of their care, treatment, issues relating to their environment and the resources we provide.

The group provides a forum for comments and complaints to take place, enabling the young people to be part of the process of change. Representatives of the young people, via the Young People’s Council, are invited to attend the monthly Simmons House Management Group meetings.

There is also a Food Steering Group which young people attend to discuss the quality and range of food available.” Read more here.

Meals are prepared at the unit

“Meals are prepared at the unit based on what young people order from the menu. There is a 4 week rotating menu with a choice of hot and cold options. All young people are expected to eat in the dining room together at lunch and tea times. If they have any dietary requirements or allergies they are asked to let staff know as soon as possible so that we can cater for these. If young people bring snacks to the unit, staff will show them where they need to be stored.”
