In February 2014 South East Network of Disabled People’s Organisations (SENDPO) and SPECTRUM Centre for Independent Living hosted a regional networking event for DPULOs on behalf of the Office for Disability Issues (ODI). The event was held at the Holiday Inn London Gatwick Worth Hotel in West Sussex.
The event was one a series being held in all 9 English Regions between January and March 2014. These events were organised as part of the ODIs ‘Strengthening DPULO’s’ programme, which provides a range of practical and financial support to help build strong and sustainable DPULOs.
The event was aimed at providing an opportunity for DPULO’s in the South East of England to come together to: learn more about how organisations can work together to market DPULOs in the region to improve our tendering opportunities; Increase understanding of commissioning; and, network with other DPULOs.
