Members’ Advisory Panel

12 January 2021

Difference North East – Members’ Advisory Panel 

Difference is looking to strengthen our member involvement so that our work reflects your concerns and tackles the issues most important to you. 

So, we’re setting up a Members’ Advisory Panel of volunteers, and we’d like to hear from you if you would like to be involved. 

We want the Panel to: 

  • Provide feedback on our plans
  • Help us to prioritise our work
  • Generate ideas for member events and activities
  • Use its contacts to help in the charity’s work
  • Combine experience from a broad range of disabilities and backgrounds

Suitable Panel members will: 

  • Have lived experience of disability
  • Share our values of equality, diversity and inclusion.
  • Have an open and collaborative approach
  • Be willing to commit to attending 3 meetings per year on a voluntary basis (expenses will be reimbursed)

The first panel meeting will take place virtually in mid-February. 

Interested? Drop us an email and tell us about you, your experience and interests:
