Seeking chairs and members for the new disability Regional Stakeholder Network

The Office for Disability Issues is seeking people to join the new Regional Stakeholder Network in 9 regional groups across England.

""

We are looking for chairs and members for 9 regional groups across England. Applications should be completed by 29 March 2019.

We are 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, and offers 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.
