Please find attached a copy of the outcome reports from this summer's How? Conference which have been produced by analysing the information provided by all of the groups and organisations in attendance.
There are some interesting, and possibly surprising findings. There were a lot of services mentioned throughout the conference that you may not be aware of, or aware of how they've adapted their services in response to the cost-of-living crisis.
Feedback obtained shows the delegates found it to be a very useful and informative event. Some even said it was the best event they'd been to for some time!
Once again, many thanks to those of you who attended and participated in the activities, and to those who helped to facilitate tables and run the event.
