‘Understanding the needs of DPOs in England’ – launch of research report into the state of the DPO sector in England
We are very pleased to announce the launch of our National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) funded research report on the state of the DPO sector in England. Titled ‘Understanding the needs of DPOs in England’ the report details findings from extensive research carried out by Inclusion London and 7 other regional Disabled People’s Organisations with over a 100 DPOs across England to understand the current challenges and needs of our sector . The report gives a detailed snapshot of the issues and challenges our sector are experiencing and puts forward a set of recommendations to strengthen our capacity building, movement building and policy and voice work that if implemented would transform DPOs ability to tackle the deepening structural inequalities faced by Disabled people in a post COVID world.
SPECTRUM Centre for Independent Living was proud to be one of the regional partners doing research towards this piece of work for the South East.
