We have used the information you provided at the last network meeting to shape this agenda. We really appreciate your input. If you requested a slot on the agenda to share information about your organisation’s services, we will be in touch for the October meeting.

We are hoping to arrange a presentation on the 'Entiledto' benefits calculator software, as requested.
