All those standing in the General Election in Ireland on 26 February are being asked to endorse the Charter by signing it and committing themselves to this urgent 12-point reform progamme. SWAN supporters are also asked to support the principles in the Charter.

Hi all,

Please find below, a link to a small survey that has been complied to find out about people's recent experiences of using/supporting users of services in recent times. The aim of the survey is to identify the particular challenges that people are experiencing and to establish whether they might consider joining SWAN as a response to their dissatisfaction. It also aims to let both service users and practitioners know about SWAN, and so to try to establish a stronger support base.

We would really appreciate you taking the time (2 minutes) to fill in this survey and to share with others you think might like to complete it too.
