The York Disability Rights Forum has recently launched and is looking for new members. As a member of the Forum I'm ridiculously excited to be involved with the whole thing!

If you live or work in York please consider joining up.

    Thanks very much @Chloe_Scope

    I hope so too! And also just more aware and considerate of the needs of different people with different disabilities. I'm so happy that the Forum is there!

    Oh, just to be clear it's not an online forum like this one, it's a group/organisation type thing.

    That's okay @laura222! You'll have to let us know how it goes. :)
