Request for a DDPO to speak at forthcoming “Celebrating the Diversity of Older Londoners” 22 February 10am City Hall
Positive Ageing in London (London’s age forum) are organising a conference supported by the Mayor of London’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion manager (Sue Johnson). The conference is titled Celebrating the Diversity of Older Londoners and it is being held at City Hall from 10 am on 22 February.
Positive Ageing are looking for a DDPO speakers to represent London’s Deaf and disabled communities. They have speakers talking about the contribution that different BAMER communities have brought to London as well as the LGBT communities and other groups of older Londoners, with a contribution from the Mayor’s office and do hope that you or a colleague can also come and speak.
The aim is for this conference (which is free and will have a sandwich lunch and tea & coffee supplied) to be both a celebration of the benefits that different communities which make up the 2 million plus older Londoners bring, as well as raising issues that impact on each group and the barriers that we all face.
They would like a DDPO to speak for 15 minutes plus a few minutes for questions and also to help us facilitate our focus groups after lunch to agree recommendations to be sent to the Mayor about how better to represent positively the wide range of older Londoners and to address issues of common concern.
They have very limited finances ( we are all volunteers plus we have our administrator working for 1 day / week) so unfortunately cannot pay speakers costs unless there is a need for accessible transport in which case we can pay for speakers uber fares.
