Invitation to attend Education and Healthcare Feedback Session

Posted: 14 January 2016

The mission of the DPA is to be the voice of persons with disabilities, so in order for that voice to be more effectively heard we have scheduled two feedback sessions on the topics of Education and Healthcare. Please choose one of the dates and locations convenient to you.   

The purpose of the sessions is to gain insight into the issues faced by persons with disabilities (and to note any good inclusive practices) in relation to healthcare/educational services.  Our findings will eventually be collated in a couple of new publications.  DPA seeks input from persons with disabilities, caregivers/parents of persons with disabilities, service providers or other professionals in the disability sector. All your input will be treated as confidential and your name will not be shared unless we have your explicit consent to do so.

These publications have proved very popular with other disability organisations and corporate entities. You will find such publications (including those based on past feedback sessions on Transport and Employment) at http://www.dpa.org.sg/?page_id=1266

DPA’s role is to advocate on behalf of persons with disabilities and those who support them. We would therefore encourage attendance by family members and representatives of organisations involved in providing various services for persons with disabilities. If you would prefer for your input to confidential DPA will not publish your name in the publications. 

Please consider the two options carefully and choose the one most suitable for you.  We look forward to seeing you at one of them. Refreshments will be provided.

Please register by 18 Jan 2016 if you are interested to attend the 1st session on 23 Jan 2016.  If you are interested to attend the 2nd session on 17 February 2016,  please register by 12 February 2016. To register, please contact Ms Halipa Ahmad at 6791 1134 or info@dpa.org.sg.
