Day Opportunities Consultation Update - November 2019

Further to the update published in September 2019 the Council has recently announced pre-general election Purdah.  The purpose of Purdah is to prevent announcements and activities by public bodies which could, or be seen to, influence the election so release of any information relating to the consultation is restricted until after the election period.

As we are now in “purdah” because of the election on the 12th December 2019 the Cabinet Report timeline has been revised and our aim is to present the report to Cabinet for decision in February 2020.

We will continue to post updates on the website and when the report is published on CMIS we will notify citizens and interested parties using the appropriate methods of communication to inform of our next steps.

Day Opportunities Consultation Update - September 2019

The Day Opportunities Consultation is now closed. We would like to thank those who contributed and took time to attend our consultation events.  We received a great deal of feedback both from  the events and through completed questionnaires which were from a broad cross section of people and organisations across the city.  The responses were from  citizens who attend day centres, carers, service providers of day opportunities, elected members,  community groups, our partners  and Birmingham citizens, all of whom have a keen interest in day opportunities in Birmingham.   

We are now in the process of analysing all of the feedback and questionnaires received, and a report of the findings will be produced.   Our aim is to present the report to Cabinet for decision in November 2019.  If for whatever reason our timetable changes, we will share the revised timetable with you.
