Agenda Item





Findings Report – Risks & Issues



Members discussed and consolidated the previously identified issues and concerns with a view to clarifying next steps towards a viable resolution.


The Forum noted MWC instruction not to proceed with previously agreed resolution until the work with the consultant has had time to be properly explored and options duly considered.


JL & GM discussed their attendance at earlier meeting with MWC and external consultant, AS, to explore potential options.


Forum noted the request for report to be shared. Concerns were expressed about confidentiality and the lack of proper representation of testimonies heard. Forum asked for clarity on the purpose of the request and any difference this would make to the advice offered. 


Consideration was given to line management and contractual challenges while these matters remain unresolved. All agreed that fulfilling our statutory and moral obligation towards participants must continue to be the Forum’s central priority.


The Forum discussed an alternative solution and will propose this as an option.
