Meeting for Sufferings - preview
Long-term Framework to enable strengthening of local communities
The long process of drafting and agreeing on the Long-term Framework for the future priorities of Friends in Britain may at last be drawing to a close

  • Margaret Peacock, convenor of the Long-term Framework Group, presented a revised draft of the framework that took into account changes suggested at Yearly Meeting in May
  • In particular, the sections on outreach and being a welcoming community had undergone substantial revision, with the latter changing its focus and title to: 'Strengthening local communities'

  • Oliver Robertson

    Isobel Lane, 10 July
    I for one would greatly appreciate the opportunity to hear a talk by a governer of The Retreat. I have wide first & second hand experience of mental health services in London which are changing rapidly away from in-patient care and consequent respite so I would be very interested in hearing how The Retreat manages the demands made upon it.
