Regional Disabled People Organisation Healthcheck
As part of the Office for Disability Issues Disabled Peoples User Led Organisation Programme a small amount of funding has been made available to develop regional networks of Disabled Peoples Organisations.
As part of this the North West Network is carrying out a "Healthcheck" survey over the next three weeks to try and assess the state of the DPO sector in our region. This simple online survey is part of this process.
We know already that these are challenging times for both large and small DPOs. Many of the funding sources DPOs have relied upon over many years are no longer funding the sector. Some DPOs have moved into service provision by taking on contracts, others have had to reduce the services they have traditionally offered while facing increasing demands from disabled people for advice, support and advocacy.
Please take some time to fill in the survey – it will only take 10 minutes.
We can promise you that any information provided will only be used to report on the general health of the sector and individual DPOs will not be identified in any published results.
We will be giving feedback from the survey to DPOs electronically. There will also be an opportunity to come along to network meeting either in
We are passionate about breaking down the barriers in society that disable people. While our roots are on Merseyside, we work with many different people across the North West to positively influence policy and practice in local government, health, employment and the wider voluntary sector.
We bring our core values of Equity, Trust, Accountability and Innovation to life through:
- working in partnership with others
- developing and participating in networks
- supporting the development of user-led disabled people's organisations
- capturing and communicating the lived experience of individual disabled people
- generating and sharing insights into the actions, attitudes and environments that disable people, so that positive change can be facilitated
