Further to the postponement of the Healthier Communities and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Panel meetings undertaking pre-decision scrutiny of Social Care Charges, it is confirmed that 2 meetings have been scheduled as follows:

Meeting 1 – 6.30pm on Wednesday 8 January 2020, in Committee Rooms 4 & 5, Woolwich Town Hall.  This will be to receive evidence from Officers, Greenwich Residents and stakeholders.

Meeting 2 – 6.30pm on Thursday 9 January 2020, in Committee Rooms 4 & 5, Woolwich Town Hall.  This will enable Members an opportunity to deliberate and agree recommendations and comment to be put forward to Cabinet that is taking place on 22 January 2020.

The key areas that Members will seek evidence on, particularly from Greenwich residents, is around impact and hardship.  Evidence provided to Cabinet on 22 October 2019 will be published as part of the Agenda for the January meetings. Therefore, if you have already given/provided evidence, there will be no need to resubmit this.  You are of course, welcome to attend the meetings and provide additional comment.

If you wish to attend, you should confirm your attendance, listing any additional need so that you can be included in the speakers list for the 8 January 2020 meeting.  If you are unable to attend but wish to provide written representations, please email them to Gurdeep Sehmi, Corporate Governance Manager by email – gurdeep.sehmi@roylagreenwich.gov.uk.
