ODI seeks regional chairs and network members

The Office for Disability Issues is seeking applications for Chairs and Members in nine regional groups across England. 

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 will complement existing, ongoing engagement with disabled people and disability organisations across government, and 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.
