More information

We’re excited to introduce our new Project Lead, Edward Phoenix, who took over from Eve Byers in May. Edward is eager to meet both our longstanding members and newcomers at this event. He’s been acquainting himself with the engagement and co-production team at Barnet Council, exploring ways to collaborate more closely to drive positive changes in the borough. Representatives from their team will also be present at the event, and we’re thrilled about this opportunity for everyone to connect.

This occasion promises not only informative discussions but also a social atmosphere with refreshments. It’s an opportunity to delve into the User Voice Project, share your feedback on priorities, and discuss where our focus should lie. There will be plenty of time for casual conversations, getting acquainted with new faces, and reconnecting with familiar ones, including our guest speaker and CEO, Caroline.

We look forward to seeing you there!
