Council seeking willing residents to take part in focus groups on fairer services

30/10/12

Aberdeen City Council has joined forces with partner agencies in the city to host two focus group sessions designed to explore how services are delivered in the city.

The two sessions will take place at the Carmelite Hotel tomorrow (31 October) and are supported by Aberdeen City Council, Robert Gordon University, Grampian Police and Grampian Fire and Rescue.

The purpose of the sessions is to help agencies ensure services are delivered in a fair way to everyone in the city who needs to use them. The focus groups will explore the services residents currently use (or would like to use) and their experiences of dealing with the relevant agencies.

The information gathered from the focus groups will help the Council to find out citizen's views about its work and priorities, which will be used to help develop a set of equality outcomes. These outcomes will help the Council to assess what it is doing right, what needs to be improved as well as allowing the Council to measure future progress.

The two focus groups will take place at the Carmelite Hotel, Stirling Street, Aberdeen from 2.30 to 4pm and 5.30pm to 7pm.

To book a place please contact Sandra Bruce at Aberdeen City Council on (01224) 523039.
