How to get more people involved in working groups etc, dealing with slackers
*Broken down into small groups to feed back to main group*
Group 1: Assign job titles on board, assigned to loiterers if not being done; have a to-do list written up at the end of each GA
Group 2: Ask loiterers what they’d like to do, how they’d help
Group 3: Use housing register (skills column); housing to welcome people and take them round working groups to see how they could help; if staying, be part of a working group (compulsory)
Group 4: General group for general jobs (odd jobs); armband or similar system (reward system) – to be served first for food; open day once a week for all of the working groups to try to involve people
Group 5: Use support/mediation; working groups to be more accessible; policing the problem could be more problematic than the problem itself?
Proposal: Board outside kitchen. After each GA, jobs go up there. People asked considerately if they’d mind doing those jobs – PASSED
Proposal: Working groups to get priority for food – PASSED
Proposal: General working group, for basic tasks – PASSED
*Long group discussion about the ins and outs, different approaches etc*
*End of meeting*
