Minutes of meeting from Tuesday 8th January 2013

We had a really good meeting. Tom Fox-Proverbs from the B&NES Carers’ Centre attended along with four carers. T made some really good cakes which were much appreciated.

We decided to try to get speakers from the following organisations:

  • Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP)
  • Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB)
  • Police Commissioner
  • Sirona
If you think of anyone else who you would like as a speaker then let us know and we will try to sort it out.

There was a lot of interest in doing joint meetings with clients, carers and the AWP. We will be looking  into this and will let you have more information when we have it.

We would like to organise some events or trips out; bowling or a quiz for example. Again, any ideas please let us know.
It was discussed that it might be a good idea to have a variety of meeting locations for the group, perhaps in Midsomer Norton, Keynsham and Bath, and rotating the venue each time. Any feedback about this would be appreciated.
We had a few queries about the rules concerning Employment Support Allowance (ESA), so we have provided some information on this blog (link at the top of the page) that hopefully will help.
