Partners in Policymaking Programme – 2016/2017
We have now confirmed the dates for the next ‘Partners in Policymaking‘ programme, which will be running from September 2016 until May 2017. This internationally recognised leadership development programme is for parents of disabled children (up to the age of 18) and disabled adults, including people with learning difficulties, mental health issues, autism, sensory impairments and physical impairments. This programme is a chance for participants to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to campaign and advocate for better treatment and social justice for disabled people within our society.
