Resource: Capacity building disabled peoples organisations
Disability LIB has produced a useful resource in the form of a position paper about disabled peoples organisations (DPOs) and mainstream capacity building.
The paper suggests a number of priorities and actions for DPOs and mainstream capacity building organisations to work together. These include;
- developing methods to capture added value of DPOs;
- understanding the impact of spending review upon DPOs;
- increasing the profile, understanding and research data of DPOs as emerging subsector;
- developing the profile, and use of mainstream capacity building programmes by DPOs.
If undertaken these actions will not only help forge useful relationship between DPOs and mainstream capacity builders, but also how the wider third sector can become more inclusive of disabled people in all of its activities, services, and as progressive employers and ethical organisations.
