NORTH

North

On 16 March, over 50

residents and partners

gathered for the North

event, held at The

Arena in Ilkeston. Chan

Kataria, emh group

Chief Executive, spoke

to delegates about the

impact of recent

government legislation

on emh homes and

services.

A session by the Parliamentary

Outreach Service brought the

drama of Westminster right into

the room, with a lively session

about how the audience could

get involved with the

democratic process both

locally and nationally in order

to influence future decisions

that affect them.

The whole event was well

received by the residents who

took part:

“ The Houses of Parliament

information was good - it has

given me some ideas for

other areas as well as working

with emh homes.”

Sam Jackson, Long Eaton

“ It was very helpful, and put

in a way we can understand.”

Anne Connelly, Cotmanhay

“ Thank you for organising

this. It’s good to be able

to ask questions directly to

the Chief Executive.”

Pauline Smart, Sawley

“ It was good, informative. I’m

glad I came!”

Neil Adams, Long Eaton

Clare Mullin, Public

Outreach Officer for

Houses of Parliament
