Partners in Policymaking

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 three years.  In Control Scotland and Jaynie Mitchell (a Partners Graduate) are running the Partners in Policymaking programme in partnership.  Our first programme took place between October 2015 and May 2016, our second programme started in September 2016 and will finish in May 2017 and our third programme will take place from September 2017 until May 2018.  Information and the application pack for our 2017/2018 programme, which starts in September 2017 can be accessed by clicking on the following links:  Programme Descriptor / Application Form
