Trustee wanted for Disability Forum

The Basingstoke & District Disability (BDDF) is on an exciting journey, which you can be a part of….

The Basingstoke and District Disability Forum (BDDF) was set up in 2008 with a mission to support the local disabled community to reach its potential in Basingstoke.  With 1 in 5 people identifying as having a disability, and no clear organisation representing them, there was a gap in the accessibility of services available, as well as a lack of inclusion opportunities for less-abled people.  The BDDF was founded by a group of residents living with disabilities with the aim of supporting the community, giving them a voice and addressing the stigma.

Our vision: To create a community that sees the person, values the difference and embraces awareness.

Our mission: To facilitate increased awareness, active involvement and healthy promotion of disability and those who live it.

Our core

With 36,000 people in Basingstoke and Deane living with a disability we’re committed to offering a programme of core services that are relevant, impactful and empowering.  Our ‘ConneXions’ programme has been running for a year and has complimented our existing range of services.

  • Signposting; an information service for people with a disability, their family and friends
  • Talk; a monthly networking programme promoting inclusion and alleviating social isolation
  • Learning; a bite-sized training and development programme focused on education, personal skills, confidence and employability
  • Disability Awareness Days; partnering with local organisations, an event highlighting disability services in the community
  • Health and well-being; opportunities to take part in free activities promoting health and well-being of people with a disability.

Want to be part of it?
