Partners in Policymaking is an internationally recognised leadership development programme 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.
We received core funding from the Scottish Government to run the Partners in Policymaking programme over the last three years and are delighted to announce that we have secured further funding to run the programme for another year.  In Control Scotland and Jaynie Mitchell (a Partners Graduate) are running the Partners in Policymaking programme in partnership.  We welcomed our new participants on 2nd November for the first session of the programme.
