2019 Annual General Meeting

We invite all of our supporters to our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 28th May, 7.30pm at The Conservative Club, North Street in Bridport (DT6 3JQ).

We are very pleased to be welcoming Mandy Ford, Head of Risk Management and Quality Assurance for Nursing and Quality at Dorset County Hospital.  Very sadly, a local young lady called Gemma passed away at Dorset County Hospital in 2015.  Gemma’s parents are very supportive of West Dorset Mencap and wanted to ensure that the mistakes which resulted in Gemma’s death are not repeated.  As a result, Dorset County Hospital with the support of Gemma’s parents has produced a 30 minute film which was launched in December 2018 and is used within the NHS Trust as an invaluable learning tool.  We are honoured to be showing the film at our AGM and to hear more from Mandy on the lessons learnt by the hospital.  This will be the first public showing of Gemma’s Story.  Everyone is very welcome to join us at our AGM so please do come along if you are interested in hearing more about our charity.  Delicious refreshments will be served as well as the opportunity to meet our committee and volunteers.

The Annual General Meeting will follow after the speaker for those who would like to stay.  We very much hope you can join us!
