There was an update on the national communications work for the Fulfilling Lives Programme, including a discussion around the potential messaging for a campaign which will lunch in July 2019. Members of the NECG were also invited to the next Fulfilling Lives Programme communications meeting to discuss this work further. The National Lottery Community Fund delivered a session on a spending review by the Cabinet Office. In follow up to this some members of the NECG will be attending a Central Government Workshop in London, in order to inform this reivew in the contect of multiple needs.
The day was co-facilitated by a representative from the National Lottery Community Fund, and Rob Eagle a Beneficiary Ambassador from Opportunity Nottingham. Seven members of the Opportunity Nottingham Expert Citizen Group also attended the event, and they were supported by Deonne Peters, also an Opportunity Nottingham Beneficiary Ambassador.
