EDA’s Councillors Question Time
Following our successful MP’s event in December EDA hosted a local Counsellors Question Time. Doug Taylor the Leader of the Council attended. EDA’s Councillors’ Question Time took place on 31st May 2016. There were many issues raised from the well attended event. There were many heartfelt and personal accounts, heard as examples of the barriers and lack of resources and specialist assistance which Deaf and disabled people face on a daily basis. A frank, open and useful discussion and exchange. It is hoped that this will contribute to influencing the decision regarding the Deaf Project service cuts, which has a disproportionate impact. Other issues such as housing and funding local people to provide the services and support so vitally needed was also discussed.
ENDIG is still a few weeks away from presenting the petition and it is therefore important to keep encouraging people to show their support by signing the petition. Read the event report here.
