A drop-in consultation event has been rescheduled for Wednesday 29 January.

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Western Isles Integration Joint Board (IJB) are currently reviewing the respite policy across the Western Isles.

Different options are being considered about how respite is utilised across the islands and whether it should be allocated differently in the future.

If you are unable to attend but would like to provide feedback, details of how to do this are on the ‘Have your say’ page on the council website here.

All comments and feedback on the contents of the draft Respite Policy are welcomed and responses will be collated and submitted to the Education Committee and the IJB for discussion and consideration before implementation of the policy.

The drop-in consultation event in Barra is now scheduled for 3-6pm on Wednesday 29 January in Comhairle Offices, Castlebay, Barra.
