The groups, which are for members of People Matter IW only, are well supported and continually expanding. New members are always welcome; membership is free. Please contact us on 01983 685 348 firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to know more.

Meeting approximately 6 times a year, this group is there for anyone who is caring for an adult with support needs. Through sharing their experiences, the group gives members the opportunity to participate in local and strategic decisions.
Older Voices Circles are local IW community based groups aimed at people aged 50+ which provide older people with a voice in their local communities. Circles have been established islandwide and they meet on a regular basis.
Autism Inclusion Matters (AIM)
This user-led group raises awareness of Autism and those on the Autistic Spectrum. It looks at what services there are for adults and what is needed or what needs to change and tells the decision makers how its members feel. AIM meets monthly.
Long Term Conditions Group (LTCG)
Organised by the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group, the LTCG holds regular topical discussions around themes affecting people with long term conditions.
If you have feedback or comments relating to any aspect of Health and Care assessments or similar issues, please submit it to us via the contact form and we will pass it on as appropriate.
