Jersey Disability Partnership Meeting 23 Oct 2017

To all JDP members

1. Please note that the next meeting of the Jersey Disability Partnership (JDP) will be on Monday 23 October 2017 at 5pm at the St Helier Town Hall. Please come along to catch up with much of what has happened recently affecting those with disability.

2. An agenda will be circulated shortly, but there will be a presentation by Kate Morel and her team from Social Security on the draft Disability Law, which was put out for consultation on 4 Sep with a deadline for comment of 10 Nov. Please see the link to access the consultation document or you can go to www.gov.je/consult to access the larger print version and the draft regulations.

3. We also expect to have an update on the new Hospital project and or the Disability Strategy.

4. The JDP has not met since Jan 2017 as a result of the winding up if its parent body, JVCS Ltd. However, it has now been established as a charity in its own right, with its own constitution (agreed at the 31 Oct 2016 JDP meeting). JFSC NPO Number 1118, Tax Exemption granted, reference EST302 dated 29 Dec 2016. AJC Membership granted 30 Jun 2017, AJC number 470.

5. If you wish to contact me jpinel@hotmail.co.uk or the new Honorary Secretary of the JDP, Tori Ducker, tori@oxygen.org.je as I am standing down from that role.

Kind Regards, John Pinel
