Music and Entertainment Applications Now Open for 2019 Awards

We have a great opportunity for service users or ex-service users to perform at next year’s National Service User Awards.

There will be five entertainment slots available throughout the day, each one lasting 3 to 5 minutes. Entertainment can include instrumental music performances, singing / rapping, dance or poetry readings.

About the awards

Originally founded in 2013 the annual National Service User Award celebrate the large number of service users projects in inpatient services nationwide.
