The second of this round of VSF was the Forth and Inverleith Forum, chaired by Dawn Anderson (Pilton CHP) Morag Wilson (Stepping Stones).
On 28th and 29th January I chaired what we have affectionately called our ‘Dragon’s Den;’ a panel of four: Suzanne Lowden (CEC), Liz Simpson (NHS Lothian), Ian Brooke (EVOC) and myself.
The first round of the VSF’s has kicked off this week with the Western and Almond meeting.
For those of you who could not make it to the showcase event on 23rd January, I thought I would capture a short write up of my presentation.
What started as a relatively small event to discuss our recent work on Outcomes, ended up being a large event with fifty people at City Chambers, with key stakeholders from NHS Lothian, City of Edinburgh Council, the Edinburgh HSCP and the Scottish Community Development Centre.
