NVC has recently been collecting and collating information about perceived gaps in service provision for People Living with a Disability in Northampton. By talking with as many organisations as possible who work in this field we hope to build up a picture of where any gaps in services lie. These may be genuine gaps with no statutory or voluntary sector services on offer at all or they may be perceived gaps that can be filled by better communication and creative working practices.
This focus group will give your organisation the opportunitiy to meet with others in the sector and to share share its expertise and experience. The findings of these focus groups and other consultations will form a report that will be available to the Voluntary Sector and Northampton Borough Council.
Please let NVC know if you have any requirements in order to make this event accessible, for example BSL Interpreter. Thank you
Refreshments will be provided.
