A message from Emilie Yerby, Disability and Equality Officer:
You are invited to a consultation meeting on the Disability and Inclusion Strategy
The Disability and Inclusion Strategy Steering Group have prepared a definition of disability, which we would like to use as the basis for the Strategy.
We have identified six priority areas for making changes, to ensure disabled people and carers are fully included in island life.
Before the definition and priority areas are finalised, we would like to consult with disabled people and carers, to make sure that these definitions really reflect local people’s needs and experiences.
We would very much like you to take part in the consultation.
There will be four consultation meetings for disabled people and carers:
Thursday 29 March (17:00 – 19:00)
Saturday 31 March (10:00-12:00)
Monday 2 April (14:30 – 16:30)
Tuesday 3 April (19:00 – 21:00)
Please reply to Emilie Yerby on firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details if you would like to attend. Please indicate all the dates that you could make.
All the meetings will be held in accessible venues and refreshments will be provided. Emilie will confirm the location and the date of your meeting at least one week in advance.
