MH FINANCE is a network of trusts who have common interest, can share experience and expertise, and want to use their combined numbers to try and influence thought and policy in the sector. The Faculty aims to support and represent the interests of finance professionals in organisations delivering mental health and leading disability services and provides an opportunity to work on solutions for common issues.

The programme is developed under the guidance of a steering group consisting of members from mental health trust from across the county and its activities are devised directly from input from the membership.
