May be a doodle of 2 people and text that says "Choices & Rights Hull Disabled People's Panel (DPP) If you are a disabled person or have a long-term health condition, we would like your views. How is the cost of living affecting you? Can you afford to get the care and support you need? Would the closure of train ticket offices or no guards on trains, stop you travelling? harder? Does using the internet make your life easier or Do you feel attitudes to disabled people are better or worse than 5 years ago?"

Disabled People’s Panel – First Meeting 22 February 2024

Choices and Rights are pleased to announce that we have scheduled the first meeting of Hull’s new Disabled People’s Panel. It has been arranged for Thursday, 22 February 2024 between 11.00am and 1.00pm.

It will be held in our Training Room at our offices and our premises are wheelchair accessible, has two accessible toilets and free car parking on site.

The first panel will be asking about what disabled people think is the most important issue to them in 2024 and what they would like to see change? It will also be a terrific opportunity to meet other panel members and to help decide what the panel should consider at future meetings.

Please can you email me by 30 January 2024 if you are interested in attending. In addition, please let me know any access needs you may have, if you will be bringing a PA with you or if you have any particular dietary requirements. We will provide tea, coffee, and light refreshments.


Acccess Requirements

We aim to meet all access requirements, but this may depend on the amount of notice we are given. The earlier you can tell us your needs, the more likely we will be able to meet them.

We are able to consider assisting with transport costs (e.g. mileage expenses, bus fares, etc), but we will only pay for taxis if you are unable to use public transport.


Mark Baggley – Manager January 2024
