Thursday, 26th November, 2.30pm - 4.30pm

You can attend the meeting that suits you best. Please let us know the meeting you want to attend by Monday, 16th November to Edel Killarney at It is important that we know the number of people that will be attending to ensure we have the technical resources we need to host the meeting online

Please also let us know if you require a sign language interpreter for the meeting. We will book an interpreter but will cancel the booking in advance if an interpreter is not required.

We will be hosting the meeting on Microsoft Teams. We find the platform user-friendly with good accessibility features. If you have not used Teams before, please don’t let this put you off. You won’t need to download any software to use Teams. We will send you a link via email and once you click that link you will be able to immediately join the meeting. We will do a quick demonstration of some features at the beginning of our meeting for anyone who is unsure.
