Regional groups seek leaders to help bring disability issues to the fore

Disabled Parking Signs And Bays

The Office for Disability Issues is seeking people to join the new Regional Stakeholder Network in nine regional groups across England.

It is seeking people that want to make a difference, either as a chair to lead and drive the efforts of their group forward, or a member to share their views and experiences to help government make improvements.

The Regional Stakeholder Network will bring the views of disabled people, local disability organisations, disabled people led organisations, and organisations that represent disabled people closer to government.

It will create face-to-face forums and provide a channel for people to share their views about policies and services that affect them.

Announced in December last year by the Minister for Disabled People, Sarah Newton MP, the Regional Stakeholder Network complements existing, ongoing engagement with disabled people and disability organisations across government.

It is designed to offer an additional channel for organisations across England to contribute their views on government priorities and a wide range of government policies that affect disabled people.
