Parasol Disability Group are hosting a community research event at Todmorden College on
Thursday 22nd September 2022 from 1.30 – 3.30pm
to publicise research about Disability and Health as we move beyond the Shadow of Covid and make positive recommendations for the future.
The event may be held in Todmorden but we will be promoting our research across Calderdale – by including community groups and other potential allies who are based in Todmorden, Hebden Royd, Halifax and other areas of Calderdale.
In the first half of the meeting we will be going through the 7 headings of our research findings about Disability and Health – as we did previously with our on-line meeting in April. This includes Professional Support, Voluntary Sector Support, Friends and Family, Personal Care, Family Carers, Getting Out and about, Friends and Community, Disability Rights and Access.
In the second half of the meeting, we will be discussing our recommendations in an open forum. These themes include Listening to and involving local citizens more in local decision-making, tackling inequalities and upholding the rights of disabled people. We welcome your ideas or suggestions on how we can follow-up our initial research in practical ways.
