  1. Introductions & Welcome

We welcomed Beckie Penny, Banes Communications Team Rainbow Resource), to the meeting. Beckie Is working on building the Rainbow Resource card making it more reliable and recognizable with more companies and schemes, as there are still some places where it cannot be used. There was also a suggestion of combining the Rainbow Resource Card with the Carers Centre Emergency Contact Card. It was felt that this would be a good idea enabling better confidentiality, using a dual card, which would use just an ID number. The joint card would also be a proper credit card

style rather than a laminated one. Beckie Penny asked for suggestions from

Parent carers where they would like to see the card be used. Suggestions/ideas to



Suggestions were also made for an addition of an online tutorial to make the

navigation of the Rainbow Resource site easier and to include a brief explanation

of the Local Offer.
