Nottinghamshire Disabled People’s Movement AGM
Thursday 19 July 2018
Contact NDPM directly for venue information
Nottinghamshire Disabled People’s Movement (NDPM) is a small, volunteer run organisation campaigning for improved rights of access to facilities, services etc. for people with any disability living within Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. We get involved in local and national consultations on issues such as transport, changes to benefits and service provision and raise awareness of the needs and wishes of disabled people with service providers and other organisations. A big part of what we do is also to share information and provide mutual informal peer support.
NDPM would like to invite you to meet us and find out more about what we do by coming to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday 19th July at 7pm. We will be sharing information on our recent activities and talking about how we can best move forward and attract new members to join us.
A British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter will be available on the night and the venue is centrally located and fully wheelchair accessible.

September PIE Action Learning Sets
Following the success of the PDU previous Action Learning Sets on Psychologically Informed Environments, we are pleased to announce that a new set will commence in September (see below for dates). A Psychologically Informed Environment is one that takes into account the psychological make-up - the thinking, personalities and past experience of participants - in the way it operates. It’s an approach to supporting people, in particular those who have experienced complex trauma or are diagnosed with a personality disorder. It also considers the psychological needs of staff: developing skills and knowledge, increasing motivation, job satisfaction and resilience. The Action Learning Sets (5 short workshops) will extend your knowledge and support you to explore how to take small steps towards creating aspects of this approach within your service. If you would like further details about this please email us at the address below.
The workshops will take place at Nottingham CVS on the following Wednesdays 2.00 - 4.00 : 12 September 2018; 10 October 2018; 14 November 2018; 12 December 2018; 9 January 2019.
