Some concerns:

There may not be enough time for conflicting ideas to be fully discussed. We will arrange some extra time at the end to resolve unfinished business.

Discussing past experiences may stir up strong feelings for some participants. Trained supporters will be available to anyone on the day. We also encourage people to arrange the best supports they have to help them bring their valuable lived experience to this process.
