New DRILL Tenders announced: DRILL is commissioning two tenders. These are:
Getting Our Voices Heard: Some topics of importance to disabled people that impact on their ability to achieve independent living are not easy to progress at a National or UK level. We are interested in maximising the influence on policy and practice of disabled people and their organisations.
Including Missing Voices: There are specific groups or communities of disabled people who are not being heard. We would like to find out why and if possible, what can be done to reach, include and strengthen the voices of such groups of disabled people in policy debates.
The closing date for these tenders is 12 noon, 27 November 2018. Information can be accessed at www.drilluk.org.uk/tenders
