Lambeth has launched the first stage of consultation on a new Joint Strategy for Services for People with Physical and Sensory Impairments. This continues until the end of July 2009. The Strategy will cover the period 2010 - 2015 and will be mainly about the needs of adults aged 18 - 64. The Lambeth Physical and Sensory Impairment Partnership Board [formerly the Lambeth Disabilities Partnership Board] is responsible for the strategy.
There is a public consultation event at Lambeth Town Hall on Monday 6th July from 11am - 3pm. Carers of people with physical and sensory impairments are also welcome, as are staff /volunteers of VCS organisations working with this client group. Help with transport is available.
There are several other ways in which users can contribute to the draft strategy. There is a dedicated page on the DASL website where there is more information including a special issue of DASL's Mole newsletter and a downloadable copy of the draft strategy. If you would like printed copies of the Mole to pass on to people contact DASL. The webpage is at http://www.disabilitylambeth.org.uk/dasl/involvement/c-lambeths-new-strategy-for-people-with-physical-and-sensory-impairments/
DASL and LVAC also hope to organise a consultation meeting in July specifically for voluntary and community sector groups which work with people with physical and sensory impairments so that you can feed in your ideas and comments.
