As part of an ongoing review into day opportunities in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area, BCP Council has recently launched a consultation to get feedback from people who are either currently associated with or may choose to take part in one of these services in the future.
Day opportunities are activities which are arranged by BCP Council and independent providers for young people and adults, which can help them to develop specific skills, meet new people and/or access employment or volunteering opportunities.
The aim of this consultation is to gain insight into what key stakeholders of these services want day opportunities to look like. This feedback will be used to inform future decisions around how day opportunities are delivered and how they are currently meeting the needs of those who use them.
Councillor Karen Rampton, Portfolio Holder for People and Homes, said: “We recognise how important day opportunity services are for many of our communities and we want to give people a chance to have their say on what these services will look like in the future, as we continue to work towards being accessible and accountable to our residents.
“We encourage anyone who is currently connected to our day opportunities or who may be in the future to take part in our consultation and help to shape the future of these services in our conurbation.”
The consultation closes for responses on 30 November 2022. Find out more here: https://haveyoursay.bcpcouncil.gov.uk/day-opportunities-review-2022.
