The minutes of March 15 2016 were not read. These will be presented to the next meeting for endorsement.


The Chair, on the basis of very low turnout and with agreement of those present agreed to cancel this meeting.


The Chair reiterated that in order to get improved attendance at future meetings, the format of the meetings are to change. There is to be the provision of learning workshop input on themed issues as well as addressing the strategic business of the Forum.


The workshop idea recognises that in today’s “meeting climate”, workshops are one measure of showing how Third Sector time is valued and the mutual learning that such workshops can provide in addressing equality issues. Presentations by the various organisations as to what service(s) they deliver are to continue.


The next Forum meeting will address a workshop on engaging and consulting the “seldom heard” and a presentation by the Gypsy Traveller Service.


The Chair expressed thanks to all those who turned up for the meeting, sent apologies and looks forward to welcoming representatives from other agencies at future meetings.
