Blog name change!

Dear all,

SLaM TWIG Ops Committee was disbanded in December 2013, and since then we have been chasing SLaM to give us the minutes of the last meeting and a statement regarding it’s closing, to share with you and the TWIG Ops Committee. As soon as we have this we will post it.

SLaM have also announced a review of all of our SLaMTWIGOps media presences which they fund, i.e. the blog, Facebook and Twitter, and this has prompted us to begin another review of these things ourselves.

The first change we have made is a new working title, which we hope more accurately reflects what we do. In due course we will be asking for your ideas on what we should be called :-).

We will keep you in the loop about the discussions we will be having, which will be lead by SLaM’s Head of Communications. At key points in these discussions, we will be asking for your views, and we very much hope you will get involved so that we can continue to do the best possible job for our subscribers and visitors, across all our media platforms.

If you have any thoughts now, we’d be very grateful if you could add them as comments to this post.

The blog is used by many health and third sector organisations, to make contact with service users and carers in South London. Twitter and Facebook have followers and friends across the Country.

Our media platforms belong to you, the people who use them, and we need your input to try to ensure that funding stays in place to provide these forums for everyone who wishes to be involved, and that we can continue to have a degree of independence from the Trust, as the key to our presences is that they are run by service users and carers, for service users and carers.

Best wishes,

Abi, Bridget, D and Matthew

Communications team
