This week we welcome Adrienne Boyle to our PPN Team! 

Adrienne was selected to be the PPN’s consultant facilitator in 2023, working specifically with the Disability Thematic Group, the Migrant Thematic Group, and the Last Thursday of the Month Members Meet-Ups.  Adrienne joins our team of Ruth (coordinator), Rachel (support worker), Eva (work experience), and Ellenora who is working on a “how to” manual and training programme, for Representatives and Secretariat. 

We look forward to our work with Adrienne in 2023!


Ellenora Lynch will be delivering her “how to” manual and training course, for PPN Representatives and Secretariat, on Friday 24 February from 4.00pm – 8.00pm and Saturday 25 February from 10.00am – 3.30pm

This is a specially designed, “how to” training for elected PPN Representatives and Secretariat.

We have 30 places available.

If some of our Representatives and Secretariat are unable to come along to the training, we can offer these places to people from our Member Groups. 

Please email Ruth if you are interested in coming along to this training on:
