On February 9th iStandUK took part in a workshop in Preston, to explore the benefits and requirements of local service registers. This LGA project is being facilitated by IEG4, and is about understanding the ‘needs’ of a person, and recommending services that could benefit.
Services could come from:
- National Registered Services
- Local Public Services
- Services in the Community
The workshop used the Ketso Method (http://www.communityplanning.net/methods/ketso_kit.php) to ensure that everyone’s ideas were heard and captured.
