People First Merseyside AGM – What a year!!

On Monday 29th  October  we had our Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the Mons in Bootle.

As usual there were lots of people there who had  all come to find  out about what People First Merseyside have  been up to over the past year.

What a year  it  has  been we heard from:

The Heritage Lottery  Group

They told us all about getting ready  for our exhibition which is  currently on display  at Liverpool Central Library. The Exhibition will be on display  for the whole of  November and  on Thursdays and Fridays  members of People First will be the to talk you through  the exhibition and share their stories.

BABS – Be Aware Be Safe

The BABS project  have been working on delivering their training and have  been all across Liverpool and Sefton talking to people about  domestic and institutional abuse. The Feedback from these has been fantastic.

Sefton Group – As usual they continue to make sure they enable people to have their say and this  year has  been no exception. Members have had the chance to speak to medicines management team, Department of Work and Pensions, Citizens Advice Bureau and the Crown Prosecution Service this was the first  time the CPS  had  done anything like this.
