Events

We are going to run two main types of event, on alternate months. These are: 

VIP Forum 

  • VIP stands for Voice, Influence and Participation, a key theme for our work. 
  • These sessions are for members – they are aimed at building our voice, resilience, confidence, skills and connections. 
  • They may be networking, training, show & tell or inspirational speakers. 
  • They will normally be offered free to members, but in some instances a booking fee may be required. 

Talking Difference 

  • These sessions are outward, public facing. 
  • They are opportunities for disabled people to raise awareness and change outdated attitudes and perceptions. 
  • They are advertised and promoted by Difference for anybody to attend. 
  • Difference members will play a key part in planning and delivering these sessions, but other speakers may also be invited to take part.

If you would like to be involved in leading a session or have an idea for a topic that you would like to see covered, please let us know. Email richard@differencenortheast.org.uk
