This meeting will take place in two parts. The first part will include updates from the local NHS Commissioning Group on the ongoing Healthy Weston consultation, and the Crisis Cafe project. We have invited speakers to come along and provide these updates, and we will also be providing our own updates about our involvement in the projects so far.
