You may be aware that applications for the commissioner roles for the Disability Equality Commission are now open, and we need your help to encourage people to apply.
The group will lead the work of embedding disability equality in every part of Bristol to improve the lives and opportunities of its Disabled people.
The Commission is looking for people who will bring knowledge of Bristol’s diverse community, awareness of at least one area or issue impacting on Disabled people, be able to work as part of a team, be a spokesperson for the Commission and ensure that its work reflects the whole community of Disabled people in Bristol.
Applications from Disabled people from all backgrounds are welcome, but we particularly encourage those who also have other protected characteristics to apply who are currently under-represented in this type of role and work.
In addition to individual Disabled people, commissioners will include Disabled people-led organisations and groups working with Disabled people, provided their representative is a Disabled person.
If you are interested, or know someone who might be, more details can be found here: https://bit.ly/3FiqBBq
The closing date for applications is midnight on Tuesday 30 November.
