Disability Wales in partnership with the Wales Governance Centre and WCVA’s Brexit Forum project, would like to invite you to join us for a roundtable discussion on the implications of Brexit for Disabled people and Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) in Wales. The purpose of this event will be to discuss the implications of Brexit for disabled people in areas such as legal rights, health and social care and accessibility.  Informed by your views and leading experts in this field we aim to  produce a briefing, also available in Easy Read format, to support with communicating information on Brexit relevant to the sector.

Please register here.

We are also pleased that we will be joined by:

  • Jeremy Miles AM, Counsel General and Brexit Minister.
  • Jane Hutt AM, Deputy Minister and Chief Whip.

If you would like to attend and are travelling from outside of Cardiff, please get in touch with Charles Whitmore (This email address is being protected from spambots.
