    Hello Martin

    I would like to participate in this event and contribute as the carer of a disabled person. The booking form only allows people belonging to an organisation – am I therefore excluded?

    Many thanks

      I think you should put your role on the form. The aim is for these discussions to be inclusive and how the community/voluntary sector can support disabled people and their carers is certainly an issue we will want to address.

    Hello Martin

    I would like to participate in this event and contribute as the carer of a disabled person. We are members of the British Polio Fellowship [Jutta has polio] – would this be OK for me to participate?

    Many thanks
