ALD Local Involvement Groups Update

10/01/2022

Update January 2022

Dear all,

Noelle Donnell of Hummingbird NI has been successful with her proposal to Evaluate our Involvement Model. Noelle had an impressive proposal and we are excited to get this Evaluation started.

The Project Initiation meeting was held with Noelle on 10th Jan with the Steering Group who will oversee the timely delivery of the report (Julie McGinty, Jonathan McGuigan, Deirdre Kelly, Martin McCrory and Ammie Storey (Carer and Chair of Fermanagh LIG)).

Noelle is currently designing a questionnaire and will be aiming to set up a series of 6 x Focus groups and a number of one- to-one Interviews at end January and February 2022.

The focus groups (5 x LIG members and 1x staff members) will be arranged via Jonathan and Deirdre and myself so please expect an invitation.

The report is on track to be completed by end of March and we plan to bring all members together in April for a presentation of the findings of the report.

We will keep you updated on the progress over the next few months.
