Webinar – Strengthening disabled people’s user-led organisations
Join us for a free webinar on 16 February 2012 at 10am to 10.45am
Space for this online event is limited and is available for Stay Connected members on a first-come-first served basis. However access is available as part of a free trial of the network.
Disabled people’s user-led organisations (DPULOs) can and do play a unique role in both representing the voice of disabled people and in delivering public services, particularly in social care.

He will also share information about the Office for Disability Issues’ Strengthening DPULOs programme that promotes the sustainability of DPULOs.
The main draws will clearly be (a) being able to talk with other people who are interested in DPULOs and make contacts with them; and (b) finding out more about the Office for Disability Issues’ DPULOs Programme (and through which there’s some ££s available).
