For those arriving in London on Friday night before the conference, come meet us!

Only a month to go! Here's the full line up - it's a packed event!

Please find attached position papers, and the National Convenor's Report and the Treasurer's Report for Swan 2015-16.

You will also find attached the Mental Health Charter's response to the Labour Party Consultation Document on 'Health and Social Care/Mental Health: the way forward'. The original consultation can be accessed at
