BACKGROUND

The East Hampshire Disability Forum was formed in 2000.

Its aims are to
(i)        Raise the profile of disabled people in the community
(ii)       Provide an accessible contact point for disabled people
(iii)      Inform people on disability issues
(iv)      Advise on the Disability Discrimination Act, help people understand it and encourage good practice
(v)       Identify what is not provided for disabled people
 

Its objectives are to
(i)           
MARKET EFFECTIVELY WHAT IT DOES
(ii)      PRODUCE AND PROVIDE clear and accessible INFORMATION about the Forum
(iii)        
CHAMPION the cause of disabled people across East Hampshire
(iv)        
EDUCATE nicely - to act as ambassadors for the needs of disabled people
(v)         
SIGNPOST - where enquiries are beyond the remit of the Forum to refer them to other appropriate organisations and individuals
(vi)         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!
