Launch Report for website @ 13 Mar 2015

Presentations were given by Ian Bone, trustee, and Tim Bone, advocate. The presentations focused on the need for advocacy services for those with a neurological disability, legislation, health board attitudes and provision, current caseload and future development of the service; a powerful, illustrated PowerPoint presentation was also given by a service user to illustrate the circumstances which are currently compromising his health and wellbeing. During the roundtable session, delegates discussed the current lack and need for advocacy for this particular group. There was unanimous support for our aims and objectives, a willingness to share information, a desire to establish referral pathways and an enthusiasm to address the current inequality of access for those with physical disabilities. The meeting closed with delegates wishing us good luck with a commitment to support us and share both clients and information. Visits to the attending advocacy projects are planned for the near future. Maida Gibson concluded by thanking delegates for attending such a positive meeting and for their commitment to future collaboration. Download the full PDF launch document
