Our October Open Meeting – Tues 26 October

Our next Open Meeting will be on Tuesday October 26th. We’d love you to join us for this friendly, sociable get together which is free to attend, includes a free buffet lunch and where you can also claim your travel expenses!

We’ll begin by enjoying a relaxed buffet lunch with you, before moving on to introduce two important presentation and answer sessions, by Citizens Advice Calderdale and Yorkshire Water.

We will also make time to chat as a group and to meet you all one-to-one, so you can share any private issues you might want to discuss with us. You are welcome to come along just for the lunch and a chat, or to stay on for the main meeting afterwards.

The Main Meeting

Citizens Advice Calderdale will be looking at the issues surrounding heating, staying warm  and saving money through the winter months, with questions and answers and one-to-one chat for anyone requiring personal advice.

Yorkshire Water will be explaining about their Priority Services Register, which has many benefits for people with disabilities. Again, there will be a chance to chat afterwards.
