Very informative, good speakers, enjoyed today with Enable Barnsley. Made new friends and we have something in common. Friendly environment.
Enjoyed the group and felt very supported. It was really good to have other PAs to talk to.
This group is a place where I feel comfortable to talk about anything. The people from BMBC are helpful, informative and always try to resolve issues for us. I enjoy the social side of the group and meeting other PAs.

There is currently no meetings scheduled to occur.
