Giving young people a voice at MFT – Become a Public Member

During our Membership Month, we’re keen to encourage young people aged 11 years or over who live in England & Wales to become members of our Foundation Trust.  Membership is completely free and you decide how much you would like to be involved.

Benefits of membership include:

  • Receiving exclusive membership invites, information and newsletters
  • Electing membership representatives to our Council of Governors
  • Being able to stand for election to our Council of Governors (if aged 16 years or over)
  • Taking part in surveys and sharing your views with us through our Governors
  • Attending member events, including our Young People’s Event and Annual Members’ Meeting.

We are currently undertaking a public membership recruitment campaign across our various hospital sites and key community locations.  If attending any of our hospitals over the coming weeks, look out for a member of our membership recruitment team who will be happy to help you complete the application process or alternatively you can apply through our website – www.mft.nhs.uk – by clicking the ‘Become a Member of our Trust – Membership Form’ button or by contacting our Membership Office for a paper form ft.enquiries@mft.nhs.uk or on 0161 276 8661.

As a young member of our NHS Foundation Trust you will be invited to attend our very popular event for young people,  on Tuesday 25th June 2019.   We’re planning to include information about the many different careers in the NHS, opportunities for young people to get involved including volunteering and Youth Forum opportunities plus practical advice on health and wellbeing.  This free event will be held in the Nowgen Centre, 29 Grafton Street, Manchester, M13 9WU (near the Manchester Royal Infirmary) with more information (including booking details) being available via our ‘Young People’s Event’ webpage nearer the time.
