  • Advice on the accessibility of facilities, equipment and services

The preliminary meeting will allow individuals and organisations the opportunity to express an interest in joining the Forum, discuss the terms of membership and agree a structure for the Forum going forward. A Chair will also be appointed at the meeting.
