Members of the local deaf community aged over 50 met members of the Commissioning department at Peterborough City Council today to discuss what works well and how services could be improved.
The meeting was chaired by Gary Jones, the Interim Head of Commissioning for Older People, Carers and Sensory Impairment and organised by Karen Berkley Assistant Commissoner in Adult Social Care alongside CDA.
The delegates had their say on how the council could work better with the deaf community and this meeting is the first in a developing relationship between the Deaf community and Peterborough City Council.
Andy Palmer, Managing Director or CDA said: “Everyone came away from this initial meeting feeling good and optimistic about what could be achieved in future. Thanks to Peterborough City Council for their enthusiasm in looking at improving services for deaf people and I think we’re all looking forward to next time and to what more we can achieve together.”
