“It’s a no-brainer. It sounds like common sense”

So, I have finally found some time to summarise (that might be exaggerating a bit tbf) last week’s ELPF meeting. Steve Goodman’s presentation is in the Library under Presentations to ELPF. And if you click here you can see my recollection of the morning, including questions that were asked and a summary of the main points from the small group discussion.

The title of this post was a comment by one of the practitioners who came to the meeting. Almost a week has passed and I find myself wondering how the ‘Hackney Model’ (I’m not sure if that’s even the right name for it but we all know what it is!) could be applied to my work. To an extent I already work alongside various professionals within various agencies but we all have our own agendas and that often isn’t the client’s agenda. Something for me to think about.

Let us know your thoughts on the Hackney model, the ELPF and things you might like to address at future forums. I’ll be at the CPD drop-in session at Waverley Court on Thursday 3rd May from 3-6pm if anyone wants to come and have a chat.

    Thanks for your recollection / minute of the presentation Ciara – this gives a much clearer picture of the meeting than the PowerPoint.
