The draft project initiation document (PID) formed the basis of consultation for a 12 week period between 24th June 2013 and 16th September 2013, in line with national government Compact guidance for voluntary and community organisations.
The commissioning team contacted many individuals and organisations over the 12 week consultation period to gather views to inform the service specification. This feedback has been used to develop a You Said We Did document.
