The Disability News Forum reports that following the repeated cancellation of the Governments DPO Forum meetings, some of the forum’s members have now set up their own replacement, DPO Forum England.

Members of the new forum include the Greater Manchester Disabled People’s Panel, the Reclaiming Our Futures Alliance (ROFA), Inclusion London, The Alliance for Inclusive Education, Equal Lives, Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) and Disability Positive in Cheshire.
