Attendees stated what they were currently doing and how they might “fit into” or under one of the priorities.

At the end of the meeting, Chair Person Eileen O’Meara asked everyone present to consider which priority their work best fitted under.

At Halton & St Helens VCA, we want make our member organisations aware of the priorities and to ask them if they are delivering any projects which could be seen as contributing towards one of the 6 priorities.
