On 25 June, Government announced that the DWP would launch a consultation “to explore ways to improve the support for people with disabilities and health conditions.”

As part of this consultation process, the DWP is holding this series of regional workshop events.

The DWP says:

“We want to hear first-hand from disabled people and the organisations and charities who represent them, about the barriers disabled people face, and work with you to explore how we can improve our service offer.

The first two workshop events will be held at:

22 October – The Vassall Centre, Gill Avenue, Bristol, BS16 2QQ
30October – The Centre for Voluntary Action BVSC, 138 Digbeth, Birmingham, B5 6DR

The times for all 3 events are all 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and the DWP is also having a quieter ‘drop in’ session from 2.00 pm-3.00 pm for people who are not able or comfortable to participate in a group setting.

Workshop attendees will receive a £30 voucher for their time and will be able to claim back reasonable expenses of travel to and from the event.

The DWP has published a FAQ sheet giving more information. For more information see:
