New resources for DPOs and local authorities from Disability Rights UK
Disability Rights UK has published new materials on making local communities inclusive
Disability Rights UK believes Disabled People's Organisations (DPOs), local authorities and other partners are in a powerful position to promote:
- Greater social citizenship rights: working with Health and Well-Being Boards
- Greater economic citizenship rights: working with Local Enterprise Partnerships
- Greater democratic engagement and accountability
This work helps meet obligations under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Public Sector Equality Duty under the Equality Act. It is about people and organisations working together to make local communities work for everyone, even in very tough times.
Thursday 07 July 2016 is THE BIG HEALTH DAY from 10am to 3pm.
Disability Essex provided advice, support and a place to socialise for disabled people, their families and carers since 1949 but has closed due to financial difficulties.
