This is a disability access forum. This group talk about what stops them from doing the things they want to do in the community and what stops them from being able to participate. It is hoped that this group will make connections with the disability access forum based in Hebden Bridge.
A meeting is arranged every month for all the students at Pennine. They talk about ideas for Pennine Magpie. The staff and students are involved in planning, giving feedback and evaluating. Every meeting has a plan of what will be discussed and everything is written down in minutes. This means any action points or ideas can be followed up.
Work is done with the students in the group to discuss what is important to them in their lives. This can sometimes lead to changes at Pennine. The students choose what they want to talk about.
