ASFAcarduf

Cardiff & Vale

Substance misuse service user forum

Summary of aims & objectives:

ASFAcarduf is a group of like-minded people (service users) from Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan.

This group gets together to inform the people who run the services that we use (the service providers) or finance the services that we use (the commissioners) how they can be improved.

These can be substance misuse services or any other services that we come into contact with.

  • ASFAcarduf contributes ideas and opinions to help inform local commissioners of substance misuse services.
  • ASFAcarduf highlights to the service providers where there might be a need for another service, or alterations to a current service.
  • ASFAcarduf doesn’t just talk about what is bad about a service, it tells the service providers when they are doing a good job.

Everyone has the right to have their opinions heard about services that they use, and if we don't speak out, the services can't change for the better.

ASFAcarduf is not a therapeutic support group, but you will meet people with similar experiences to yourself.

Services:

ASFAcarduf meets on the 3rd Friday of every month at 1pm & the 1st Thursday of every month at 1pm at The Wallich Centre on Cathedral Road (opposite Coffee #1).

Anyone can attend, whether you are a direct service user or the friends or family of a service user.

If you can’t make it to a meeting then contact Ben at bendavies@cardiff.gov.uk, he can pass information on to the group.

Referrals:

ASFAcarduf is open to any service user (past, current or future), carer or service user representative from Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan who can offer a relevant contribution to the group.
