"You may be aware that we are looking at ways of strengthening the Forum.  One way is running meetings so that one meeting out of every three is the format we are doing at the moment e.g. taking notes, reporting funding/finance, following an agenda etc. and the other two meetings to be less formal and allow more time to bring in guest speakers or just have time to discuss caring issues and topics plus have time to socialise. We are still looking for people to take on roles such as finance etc. as I am having to take a lot of work on whilst these roles remain vacant. "
