We will be hosting guided focus groups with community members. Our aim will be to do research and explore ideas about what we can do as a collective to make our services better and widely available. We plan to host one per month which will be listed on our calendar, one of the committee members will act as a moderator within the group, each session will contain between 4 – 8 people from different areas of the community so we get a wide range of diverse backgrounds. The issues raised in the focus groups will be submitted to the project committee who will decide on the most important issues to tackle.
As focus groups only deal with a small amount of people, we may look to expand the reach and offer surveys and conduct studies so we can get out to as many people as possible. The meetings will be secure and relaxed in our workshop, which has plenty of space. We also have plenty of facilities, which can be utilised.
