Summary of meeting

The LDPB discussions included:

Health Update

Listening Sessions – Group Work

As part of an ongoing, wider commitment, we want to improve how people with disabilities are supported in Devon. We want to focus on what matters to people and how they can achieve their goals. The group were asked to give their views in the listening session, the questions were:
