NNPCF AGM – a great success
The NNPCF held its AGM in Manchester on the 27th of November. The event was a great success with over 200 delegates attending representing over 100 forums from across the country.
At the AGM, the NNPCF steering group announced the results of the electronic ballot of members that had been held in the run up to the event. The membership voted overwhelmingly (over 90% ) to endorse the strategy that the NNPCF steering group had recommended:
- to adopt a new vision and mission statement for the NNPCF
- to and authorise the steering group to set up a new Community Interest Company and to transfer the operations of the NNPCF to it.
The NNPCF steering group committed to creating a detailed 2 year implementation plan in co-production with our key stakeholders between now and March 2018. This will outline the next phase in the evolution of the NNPCF following the end of the implementation period of the Children and Families Act.
Delegates also spent time participating in a number of workshops based on the key themes being raised by our members – SEN support, preparing for adulthood, transport and the capacity, capability and Sustainability of forums. The workshops captured a range of experiences and issues as well as ideas on how we might improve things. These invaluable insights will be captured in NNPCF talking points on these subjects which will be published over the coming weeks.
