On 9th January we ran the Disability Action Alliance “Broadening Out” event to generate new actions for the Alliance to take forward. Barclays kindly agreed to hold the event at their offices in Canary Wharf and it was attended by around 50 member organisations from all sectors, around a third of which were disabled people’s organisations.
The event was short, but solely focused on thinking up new ideas for both existing and new projects. There was a great buzz around the room and people contributed a fantastic amount of thoughts and suggestions. As a result we now have a raft of potential new projects and actions; we also had members putting themselves forward to be involved which was a great outcome for the day!
