Policy and Campaigns Forum

The Policy and Campaigns Forum promotes an inclusive society and opposes exclusion and segregation. It does this by strengthening the collective voice of Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations (DDPOs) in London.

Our forum:

  • Supports DDPOs to understand policy and campaigning issues and identify how best DDPOs can respond
  • Enables DDPOs to share information and experiences on policy and campaigning issues
  • Provides a forum to discuss and explore issues relevant to Deaf and Disabled people’s policy and campaigns.

See our full list of aims and objectives here [link].

Eligibility for membership

Members must represent a DDPO or an organisation actively working towards becoming a DDPO. A maximum of two representatives from each organisation can attend the quarterly meetings.

What is a DDPO?

DDPOs are organisations that follow the social model of disability and are run and controlled by deaf and disabled people. At least 75% of the governing Board must be made up of Deaf and Disabled people, and 50% of the staff.
