CULTIVATE relationships with key partners
The Forum’s key strength
is in being user-led, therefore expert-led. Its constitution states that 75% of the management committee will be disabled
people. It also has well-established relationships with local government and other district-wide organisations and plans
to develop these partnerships further.
We need you to join us to help strengthen the voice of disabled people in East Hampshire!
