Course for parents of disabled children

Last year a person from Shetland went on this course and found it really useful.....

Partners in Policymaking is an internationally recognised leadership development programme for parents of disabled children (up to the age of 18) and disabled adults, including people with learning difficulties, sensory impairments and physical impairments.

This programme is free to participants, offering a chance to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to campaign and advocate for better treatment and social justice for disabled people within our society.

The programme is designed for parents and adults who:

  • think that life for disabled children and adults could be better
  • want to improve the way things are now, but don’t know where to start

Some people on the programme will already be members of groups and organisations who are working for change, while others may be new to this. By the end of the programme participants should expect to be better able to contribute to the successful implementation of self-directed support.

The next programme begins on 30th Sept and applications need to be submitted by 22nd August.
