Building a National Voice of Disabled People 2013

12 November 2013

Annual General Meeting and Conference 2013

Date: Thursday 31 October 2013

Venue: Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA

Read conference report.

Our second Conference considered how we can build a strong and loud national voice of disabled people. Given the affects of social security reforms, local government spending cuts, the rise in incidents of disability hate crime and the continuing lack of employment opportunities there has never been a more important time for the voice of disabled people and people living with long term health conditions to be heard.

Thank you to all those who attended and participated to make the day a success.

Thanks also to the speakers and workshop:
