Dove Report 2013

Reach Project Workers prepared posters and case studies to help people talk about loss and bereavement. There were 9 Reach Members at the meeting, 3 men and 6 women. Their ages range from their 30s to their 60’s
Reporting on the Big Health Review 2012
The Learning Disability Partnership Boards in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire asked Reach to plan and organise the Big Health Review 2012. Reach planned a big meeting to help people with learning disabilities and carers to speak up about health services. We asked people to tell us about their health experiences. On the 3rd of July lots of people came to the meeting at the Tillington Hall Hotel in Stafford. At the Reach Parliament meetings in Stoke and Staffordshire, Reach MPs talked about health services. Some people filled in questionnaires and sent their views to us by post if they could not come to one our meetings.
Reach wrote a report about this work called ‘Reporting on the Big Health Review 2012’. Our report has lots of information about what is working well and what needs to improve in health services.
Reach Highlights 2010-2011
Stoke Parliament have been speaking up about: the NHS, having more choice and control, having rights and a voice, being a real part of the community, hate crime, spending cuts, training and jobs.
Reach MPs have been checking on health and social care services and giving feedback to Managers. We have been writing letters to MPs, Councillors and officials to share people’s views. We have been reviewing our work and making plans for 2012.
Learning Disability Strategy 2009
In 2009 Stoke-on-Trent Learning Disability Partnership Board asked Reach to help with a new plan called the Learning Disability Strategy. The new strategy says how services will help people with learning disabilities live a good life in the future. Reach had small focus group meetings to find out what people think is important. We talked about:
what does a good life look like?
what support do people need?
what should be in the new strategy?
Reach wrote a report about this work and sent our report to the Stoke-on-Trent Learning Disability Partnership Board.
