In March we are set to see a whole new group of Partners
graduate from Partners in Policymaking leadership programmes
running in Staffordshire and in Cornwall and Exeter.
The courses have aimed to give people the knowledge, skills,
confidence and self-esteem to ensure a better future for themselves
and their loved ones, both courses also aimed to provide families
with the chance to meet other people who are leaders in the
disablity rights movement and be connected with a strong network of
families working together across the country.
Participants in both courses have already been very active and
one Dad from Staffordshire has even been inspired to run his own
local conference with another Dad for 160 family members and
frontline professionals on the 14th May. The conference will be run
by D.A.D.S which stands for Dads and Disabilities Support. The
event will be free thanks to funding secured by Craegmoor Service
Providers and aims to build awareness and make a difference for
families who have children with disabilities and challenging
behaviours. To find out more about D.A.D.S please see their website.

Policymaking courses on our web page here.
