Lambeth & Southwark Diabetes UK - Annual General Meeting 2016 26 Oct. 2016

  1. Summary Minutes of the 2015 AGM.
    • Members received a report on activities for the previous year and re-elected officers and committee members for 2015/6. The support provided by both Lambeth and Southwark CCGs was acknowledged 
  2. Verbal Report on activities for 2015/16 by Chair
    • Any questions from members?
  3. Accounts

The group, which is part of the national charity Diabetes UK, produces accounts, which are subject to audit, for the year ending 31 December. The main source of resources for the group comes from the two CCGs which pay 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 (50%) and by a CCG directly paying for our lunch.

Excluding Food, the group spends approx. £2,000 a year on its six Patient Forum Meetings. Grant funding is approx. £1,400 and the balance is raised by fund raising at meetings and events. Each Patient Forum meeting typically raises £30-£40. The value of food consumed at each meeting is estimated at £250 (ex VAT)
