Hi everyone, it's been a hectic few months here and i have been pretty lax in keeping in touch with folk on this forum - my apologies to all, ill be making sure i play a more active role on here in future,
So what have we been up to???
1:Engaging different teams of Council Officers around the conceptof ABCD
2:Working with community panels as part of the 'Community First' programme we have going on in some areas
3:Working to share ABCD with senior managers within the Council
So far so good - but this is really only the start of the journey - ABCD is being factored into our service plan as the basis for future community engagement and in the longer term we will be working to spread this across the authority as far as possible - lots of work to do before we get there but the fact that it is being implemented now is hopefully a sign of things to come!!
I fully subsribe to Alan Williams' comment in one of my last posts that this needs to truly use local people as the starting point and not simply be something that proffessionals talk at communities about!!!
thats it for now ill be in touch soon with another update!
