Annual Public Meeting- What We Heard


At Barnwood’s Annual Public Meetings in November 2021, over 50 participants came prepared to discuss the following in small groups:

• What Small Changes would they like to see happen in Gloucestershire, maybe in a specific area, or requiring a
small amount of money?

• What Bigger Changes would they like to see, either county-wide of bigger or more longer-term funding?

Raising Awareness of something happening that they think deserves to be more widely known or heard about?

• Did they have something that they have to offer or would like to share, like a skill or expert knowledge?

In some instances, ideas that were raised were about things that Barnwood is already working on or that we are planning to work on, so we’ve given an update on those, as well as information on how you can get involved in that work.

Where something has been raised that we haven’t got in plan already, we’re going to take all of the feedback and consider it within the relevant team to develop our thinking on what action we might be able to take. We’ll then come back to you with an update later in the Spring to let you know what we’ve been able to progress.

This feedback serves as an incredible situation analysis of the county in relation to disability and mental health and will be invaluable for us in our thinking and areas of focus.
