The Hardest Hit North East Coalition are holding a conference on 1 June 2012 that will consider ways to take action against government cuts and examine their impact on people in the region. The event is free to disabled people, their carers and those from charities or Trade Unions. Register your place now with RNIB!
Have you been hit by welfare and benefit cuts, or through changes to local services? Are you concerned about cuts making tackling disability hate-crime more difficult, or wider reforms like changes to support towards housing cost and council tax meaning the disabled could miss out? Are you a carer, someone who works with or alongside those affected by these changes?
If so, please come along to this event to help build our region's response to an ongoing programme of cuts falling on disabled people. Listen to people tell their own stories about how the cuts have affected them and find out more about what we can do to try and stop the disabled being hit harder than society as whole.
Venue: Banqueting Suite & Pandon Room, Newcastle Civic Centre, Newcastle
Date: 1 June 2012
