Portsmouth Disability Forum Meeting Diary 2018
PDF Empowering Children & Families
One aim of ECAF is to facilitate co-production and encourage commissioners to work in partnership with families and stakeholders to co-design services that better meet their needs.
Positive feedback, issues and complaints will be shared with relevant agencies (unless confidential and always anonymously) in order to improve services in the education, health, social care or voluntary sector.
It reports directly to the SEND board at their meetings and is included in Local SEND strategy. ECAF is run by the Portsmouth Disability Forum. Where possible the Chair of the meeting will be a parent representative supported by the Co-Chair or by a staff member of the Portsmouth Disability Forum in the absence of the Co-Chair.

Portsmouth City Band
The band was first formed in 1939 as the Auxiliary Fire Service Band and was mainly for the recreation of the Firemen serving at that time.
In 2016, after many happy decades, Portsmouth City Council decided that Brewery House in Hambrook Street, Southsea, the headquarters and home of Portsmouth City Band was to be redeveloped for accommodation. Finding a permanent home for a brass band is rarely straightforward but after much hard work and searching, the Frank Sorrell Centre in Southsea became the next step in the history book.
