Peterborough Disability Forum in the Community

Sharing this email from my friend Bryan so that it reaches a larger audience.

Peterborough Disability Forum is going out on the road. Talking to organisations and groups of people that can’t always access the main meetings at the Town Hall or Cresset Centre.
The Disability Forum was established in 2009 to give disabled people a voice in the way the city is run. And this is your chance to have your say on issues that concern you, your family or carers. Access, transport and health and wellbeing are just some of the themes discussed at these meetings and there is every chance an officer from the council or health authority might be available to answer many of the questions you want answering

Working in partnership with the city council and NHS/Primary Care Trust, the Forum has been involved in the reopening of St Georges Hydrotherapy Pool and the creation of the Changing Places toilet facility. If you notice the new accessible parking bays and improved pavements in and around the city centre, that’s probably down to the ongoing work between the forum and City Council

Would you like to find out more about Adult Social Care or sports and fitness programmes for people with disabilities?
Do you want to find out how you can contribute to one or all of the Forums sub groups and make a difference to the way the city works?

If you run an organisation that would like to hear more about the work of the Disability Forum and how you or your group could get involved
Please contact Bryan Tyler email :

Best wishes
