Hardest Hit North East: Conference on the impact of cuts on disabled people

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!

Event Details

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

Cost: The event is free to disabled people, their carers and those from charities or Trade Unions. If you would like to attend as a visitor from a commercial or public sector organisation there is a small charge, please email Stephen Powers at to find out more about your organisation exhibiting or to be invoiced for a £25 Public/Commercial visitor place.

To register, use the RNIB registration form or email

Event supported by RNIB, Trade Unions and other Disability Charities working together as the Hardest Hit North East Coalition
