Are you interested in improving services for people with disabilities?

24 January 2018

Residents interested in improving the experiences of people with disabilities and mental health needs in Brent are invited to an event on Thursday 8 March 2018 taking place from 6.00-8.00pm at Brent Civic Centre, Engineers Way, Wembley, HA9 0FJ

This event is being hosted by Brent’s Disability Forum and follows on from the 6 September event. The purpose of the Forum is to exchange views and learn from other people in order to improve experiences for people with disabilities and mental health needs in Brent.

The topic of discussion will be hate crime. There will be a ‘soapbox’ during the event, where attendees will be able to talk about local issues of importance to them. Representatives from Brent’s Safeguarding Adults Board will also talk to the Forum about adult safeguarding.

Cllr Neil Nerva, Chair of the Disability Forum, said: 

“The purpose of the Disability Forum is to ensure that our residents and visitors to the borough with disabilities and mental health needs are getting the best services.  

“This meeting will focus on hate crime which is key to our residents being able to live happy, independent lives. 

“I would encourage all residents who are passionate about this issue to join us at the event. Your views and experiences are very valuable to us all so please come along and have your say on this important issue.” 

Light refreshments will be available and attendance is free. There will also be a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter present on the night. If you would like to attend please contact Brent Disability Forum at brentdisabilityforum@brent.gov.uk or on 020 8937 4594.
