Have you had equipment on loan for you or the person you care for?
The Community Equipment Service delivers thousands of pieces of equipment every month to people of all ages across the city. The Council and CCG are looking to design a new service to start on 1st July 2020 and would be really interested to hear the views of people who have, or have had, equipment on loan from the community equipment service to help them understand what a new service could/should look like.
Please complete the survey if you or someone you know has had equipment on loan from the Community Equipment Service. The deadline for responses is 25th October.
Changing Places Toilets – have your say!
This consultation seeks people’s views on how the Government can increase provision of Changing Places toilets in specific new, large buildings commonly used by the public, as well as those undergoing building works. The proposed approach is to introduce a mandatory requirement for Changing Places toilets in Building Regulations.
