Feeding into council plans, we are developing a ‘Collaboration in Action’ Forum, which will consist of volunteers and Essex County Council staff. We are passionate about collaboration and ensuring that citizen voices and lived experience is at the heart of everything we do.' The forum meets on a quarterly basis and will cover different topics each month, with the next meeting in October 2020. The main topic for the October meeting will be “Care in the community” If you have any comments / concerns , or positive feedback on this topic, that you would like me to raise at the forum, please drop me an email. rogerp@pactforautism.org.uk This is your chance to help shape future services, I look forward to hearing from you Roger Pope Forum member / PACT for Autism volunteer.
