The Suffolk Consortium of User Led Organisations and Individuals invited Steve Allman to chair their annual conference at Suffolk One this week. The conference brought together disabled people from across Suffolk to discuss key issues impacting in their lives and provided an opportunity to discuss these issues with a number of “listeners”, including county councillors and service providers.
Linda Hoggarth MBE, chair of the Suffolk Joint Diversity Group thanked Steve for facilitating the day:
“Steve Allman chaired our Disability Focus conference on behalf of the Suffolk Consortium of User Led Organisations. It was really good to have Steve chair our event, he managed to keep a very diverse group of people on task, on time and in good order. His skills in ensuring that everyone was included and that they felt enabled and empowered to have their say was just what was needed. He’s a great advocate for disabled people.””
