20th February 2018

Dear Reference Group Members, thank you very much to all who attended our meeting on 20 February and we appreciate it was a busy meeting with a lot of content.  I am attaching the minutes of the meeting together with the associated slide presentations and would also like to highlight some points:

  1. There is a Meet the Funders event on 19 June in Workington with The Henry Smith Charity – details are attached
  2. GDPR appears rather complex, but must be faced!   We will organise a separate in-depth session shortly but in the meantime our presenter last week, Jacky York, has asked us to re-circulate the consultation document and guidance relating to Children & Young People and GDPR – deadline date is 28 February  and documents are attached again.  (This has been circulated previously)
  3. Dani Leslie recommended this link for help with GDPR:
  4. Following the presentation about Child Bereavement UK, you are reminded of the free suicide awareness training being offered by CCC and details are attached








Our next meeting is on Tuesday 24 April at 1.30pm at the Penrith Methodist Church.  Please let me know if there are any particular topics that you would like to be included.

Kind regards

You will see in the minutes that there is a note about claiming expenses for attending Reference Group meetings and meetings on behalf of the Reference Group. We do encourage members to claim expenses as this helps with grant funding and is indeed one of the reasons we receive some funding. The expenses form is always included with the minutes but I am also attaching it as a separate document to make it even easier to claim!

Our next meeting is on 14th February 2017 at 1.30pm at the Penrith Methodist Church and we look forward to seeing you all then. In the meantime, enjoy the festive season which is looming ever closer!
