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 !
