Our service user advocacy group at Fortune works is busy making plans to hold fresh elections by early spring of this year.
The Service Alliance Group is voted for by service users for service users, and aims to give people a real say in how their service is run. Elections are held at least once every three years, with nominations being open to all who attend.
Current members were very saddened by the sudden loss of fellow advocate, Eddie Burns, who sadly passed away at the beginning of January. The group also had a resignation from a long standing member and has registered recxent interest from people who are interested in joining the group.
With all of these changes in mind, it seemed to be time to start planning for a new election to give people a chance to ensure the right representatives are in place.
The group hopes to take nominations in the next couple of weeks, with a view to holding an election in late February or early March. Watch this space for updates!
