As a Disabled Person’s User Led Organisation it is really important that we are shaped by you, our beneficiaries. This year, more than ever, this is a real challenge. In previous years we have held events, visited groups and individuals in the community, reaching out to understand how we can best support disabled people.
Thanks to very generous funding from Fidelity, we have enlisted the help of the University of Kent to help us design our questionnaire and explore different ways of capturing the views of disabled people.
Using Survey Monkey our questionnaire takes just 15 minutes to complete (other formats are available) and we are asking for your help:
We are trying to capture the thoughts and feelings of over 5000 people. This is a big ask but when you consider that there are over 250,000 disabled people in Kent and Medway it is really important that we reach as many as possible.
Please help us to reach out to disabled people, their families and people who support them by spreading the word to your friends and networks, encouraging anyone you know to complete the survey. Responses are anonymous if you want it to be and there is opportunity to get more involved in the future through focus groups or one to one interviews.
Your support would be very much appreciated. Every response we receive will help us to continue to support you into the future.
We look forward to sharing our findings with you all next year!
