  4. Accounts

2017: Your group is part of the national charity Diabetes UK, and they produce accounts, which are subject to national audit, for each year ending 31 December. The main source of resources for our group in 2017 had come from the CCG which paid for our running costs (hire of hall, printing, postage etc.) and food for our meetings. The group receives these funds in the form of a cash grant from Southwark CCG. Our funds are also supplemented by the collection of donations at our meetings and various other events.

2017: Excluding food, the group spends approx. £2,000 a year on its six Patient Forum Meetings. Grant funding is now only £1,400 and the balance is raised by collecting donations and through fund raising events (£1,200). The value of food consumed at each meeting is estimated at £250 (inc. VAT). It is estimated that income and expenditure in 2018 will follow a similar pattern.

  1. To elect the officials of the voluntary group and Committee members for 2018/19.

Note: If you wish to stand for election as an official or Committee member. Please advise the Secretary – George Mence at least 7 days prior to the meeting.

The existing officers & members of the Committee have agreed to stand for re- election.
