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.
Merseyside Live and Learn Group
We heard about all of the activities they have been planning including a 6 week Christmas craft course which will start on 13th November. If you want to find out more get in touch.
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.
