Work, Health & Disability Consultation workshop
The Work, Health and Disability Consultation has been set up by the Department of Health and Department for Work and Pensions to look at getting people with long-term health conditions and disabilities into work.
Forum delegates will have the opportunity to take part in a workshop discussing how local VCS organisations can respond as a collective to key questions and represent the voice of local communities in the consultation.
Who can attend?
The forum is open to any VCS group or social enterprise that work around economic inclusion Leicester or Leicestershire.
Whether you’re a leading national organisation delivering comprehensive services or a small, informal group providing local advice, we look forward to welcoming you at our forum.
