Join us and Greater Manchester Disabled People's Panel online on Monday 7th February from 4.30-5.30pm for a conversation between Mayor Andy Burnham and disabled people in Greater Manchester.

Last year we hosted a hustings for the candidates of the GM Mayoral elections.  At the hustings, each of the candidates promised that if they were successful they would return to talk to disabled people about their future plans. 

Andy Burnham will outline his strategies for improving the lives of disabled people (e.g. in areas such as transport and digital exclusion) and respond to questions and challenge. The Mayor will also recognise the work of the Disabled People's Panel over the last year and outline shared priorities. 

The meeting will be BSL interpretted and there will be live captions

If you would like to attend, please register at Eventbrite or email panel [at] (subject: A%20conversation%20with%20Andy%20Burnham) and let us know of any access requirements.
