How to find the room

Welcome

Our Host for the evening is Trish Jubb.

Room FG06 was also our venue in January 2017 and 2018. It’s on the ground floor of the Fusion Building near the rear car park. Get directions here.

Refreshments From 7.15pm. Available from 7.15pm. Coffee/Tea with biscuits
Sensory Table We have an increasing number of small sensory items which will be on tables for use during the meeting – please try not to be too distracting with them during talks! On occasions there may be a bigger selection on a separate sensory table for use before or after the meeting (but not during) so you can explore and try out items which may help to manage sensory sensitivities or which have been recommended for a sensory diet.
Notices 7.30pm
  • Update on DAAS, the committee and teams.
  • Your views matter. DAAS has been asked by the ASC Partnership Board to up-date the answers we previously collated from individuals in the group about what type of support would help them, or their family member/friend, to live a more independent life. We will shortly be asking for your ideas and priorities.
  • Dates for your diary - see list of dates for 2019.
Main Event c7.45pm
  • Part 1.Short YouTube video shown by Jason about The Retreat,a safe and welcoming environment for out of hours support for mental health problems.
  • Part 2. New Year Quiz run by Richard and Brian Hector.
    This is an informal and usually popular event with a chance to share your knowledge, relax and compare notes with others. There will be small prizes for the winning team. Don’t worry if you don’t have a ready-made team or don’t know anyone yet as small groups can come together on the night. Or you could take part solo! Good Luck"
And Finally ..... Time after the Main Event to circulate, chat, seek advice or offer help and generally catch up.
Confidentiality Please respect each others’ privacy and don’t discuss outside meetings who else attends or what they say at DAAS events, unless that person has given you permission to do so.
Note for first-timers At DAAS meetings you are welcome to join in and take part but you are also welcome to just listen & observe – whatever feels comfortable.
Can You Help? Many thanks to those who already help in running DAAS meetings or who have recently offered to take on some of the support roles. If you would like DAAS to thrive and prosper please think seriously about what you too can do.
