Feedback, suggestions and comments

At the Resource Centre our aim is to build our services around the needs of our user groups. We are always really pleased to hear ideas and suggestions. Maybe there is a piece of equipment that you would like to hire but we don’t currently provide? Maybe you need some information to help run your group but can’t find it on our website? Or perhaps you’d like to tell us about something we’ve done that you have found particularly useful, and think other groups will too?

Please do get in touch with your comments and suggestions. You can email us, write to us, or come into the centre and fill out one of our comment forms.

Thanks for your feedback!
