PFG and AI start work on exciting new DPULO project!

The Personalisation Forum Group (a peer support group for people with poor mental health) has approached Active Independence to ask if we will work together on an exciting project which will ultimately strengthen Disabled Persons User Led Organisation’s (DPULOs).

As two genuinely user led organisations we have already built-up good relationships, working together, campaigning for better services for Disabled people.

The overall purpose of this piece of work is to create a DP ULO ‘quality seal’  which will give public services commissioners  confidence and encourage a move to a more equitable commissioning process which does not  unfairly disadvantage DPULOs .

The work will get underway this week and is due to be completed by April/May 2013.  We will post updates  as the work progresses !
