‘Many hands make light work’.

HUG cannot, by itself, work as effectively without the partnership of other like-minded organisations. We sit on NHS committees where we can have an influence on policy and decision-making; we deal regularly with the area’s local authority teams; we take part in national mental health initiatives, and we work closely with other local advocacy initiatives and third-sector organisations across both Highland and Scotland.

And many of those organisations come to us, too, asking for our views, respecting our ideas and building our voice into their own wider planning and activity. Good teamwork can pay dividends.
