Help us develop a disability and neurodiversity strategy for Staffordshire

What are we doing?

We are developing a strategy (plan) for the next five years (from 2023 to 2028).

This strategy is about people with disabilities and neurodiversities, so we want to hear from anyone who:

  • has a learning or physical disability
  • has a hearing or visual impairment
  • has autism or another neurodiversity. The word ‘neurodiversity’ explains different ways peoples' brains work. Autism, Asperger’s syndrome, dyslexia, ADHD and Tourette’s are examples of neurodiversities.
  • cares for or lives with anyone with any of these disabilities or neurodiversities
  • works with, employs, teaches or delivers any types of services to disabled or neurodiverse people.

Why are we doing this?

We want to understand people's experiences with disabilities and neurodiversity in Staffordshire.

  • Do people feel in control of their health and wellbeing?
  • Do they feel they can live their best life?
  • Do they feel involved in their local area?
  • What is their quality of life like?
  • What actions can we take together to improve this? 

What we learn about this will help us develop our plan.

Important: What do we need you to do now?

Thank you to everybody who has taken the time to share their views and experiences with us in the survey. The survey has now closed. It has helped  us to understand what’s important to people to live their best life.

There are more opportunities to have your say by coming along to meet us at one of our district events. People can drop in and go when they want. We will be using what we have learnt from the survey to develop our new strategy (plan). These events are your chance to help us to do this.

The information below shows where you can come and meet us in your district. 

Some people might want to tell us about their needs if they are visiting us. Email us at wholelifedisability@staffordshire.gov.uk and we will see what we can do for you.

This is where we are meeting people. Advocates and sensory professionals will be present at all events but not always for the entire time. Details, by event, are in the table below:
