Healthy Dudley meetings offer voice to residents
Dudley Council is inviting local people to have their say in a series of health meetings, with those taking part being offered up to £140 in gift vouchers.
Four groups of 16 people from Dudley borough will be selected from a pool of volunteers to join a series of seven Healthy Dudley community meetings, which start in September.
During the sessions participants will talk about the things that affect health in their local community and will be invited to explore how community, public and professional agencies will be able to make things better.
Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member for health and adult social care, said:
These sessions will help us to gain feedback, ideas and suggestions from the local community on how we should best shape health and wellbeing in Dudley in the future.
It’s easy to register interest in the sessions and I would encourage people to get online and find out more.
Sessions will be held weekly from mid-September and last around two and a half hours each.
Participants will be offered a £20 gift voucher for each session they attend, travel expenses and childcare is also available.
