Get involved

One of the best things about Accord is you can get involved as much or a little as you like.

Our members have told us what topics interest them, how they prefer to be contacted and how they want to get involved. Membership is free and flexible to suit you.

Sometimes we’re just looking for people to tell us their experiences of local services and other times we are looking for people to actively feedback ideas on developing new services.

Whatever your interests or background, we have something to suit everyone from our Suits You membership, Accord Ambassador roles, Steering Group or appointed to the Community Forum.

Suits You

Suits You is the new way to have your say about health and social care services through Accord
