Summary of report content

Healthwatch Bristol worked in partnership with Dhek Bhal strengthening the voice of the South Asian Men’s community outcomes by chatting to their service users over a cup of tea. Healthwatch Bristol discussed which services and activities they use to support them emotionally. Healthwatch Bristol spoke to attendees in small groups, discussing what amenities they felt helped to support them as individuals with their emotional health. Healthwatch Bristol spoke to service users using our emotional health survey and collated the findings. The group chat was successful, with people speaking willingly about their experiences of emotional health, which health and social care services had supported them and which they felt had let them down. Some attendees stated that they were disappointed with services they had received and wanted to take matters further in order make a complaint. Healthwatch Bristol were also to speak to them about AVoice, an advocacy service for adult victims of crime and antisocial behaviour. They told Healthwatch Bristol several valuable pieces of feedback about services, and also how support could work better for them. This will be part of our overall report which will be published in December 2018.
