What does it do?
The Strategic Disability Partnership is a group of people who make sure the needs and hopes of disabled people and carers from all backgrounds, are listened to, valued, acted upon and included in the future plans for the Bradford District
The Partnership will be an excellent example of good practice by
Making sure all disabled people and their carers are heard
Making sure all information the Partnership produces is understandable and follows the ‘5 Principles for better information for disabled people’ and the NHS Accessible Information Standard
Making sure we are accessible to all disabled groups
Making sure we are helpful and share our knowledge and experience about disability with others
Making sure the Strategic Disability Partnership works closely with other engagement partnerships (The Learning Disability Partnership, The Autism Partnership and the Older Peoples Partnership) to save time and resources and achieve our joint aims.
