Join Us: Speak Up About Disability Issues in Bristol

Your Chance to Talk to the People Who Make Decisions

On Thursday, 2nd May, voters in Bristol will decide who our new councillors will be. These councillors decide on important things like Adult Social Care, Housing, Taxi Licensing and lots of other choices that matter a lot to Disabled people in Bristol.

A Special Meeting Just for Us

Before the voting, there’s going to be a special meeting hosted by Bristol Disability Equality Commision. 

It’s on Thursday, 25th April, in the Conference Hall at City Hall on College Green. 

The leaders of all the main political parties in Bristol have been invited. 

They will tell us what they plan to do for Disabled people if they win. 

But the most important part of the meeting is for you to ask them questions and tell them what you need and want.

This kind of meeting is called a ‘Hustings’.

Let’s Make Our Voices Heard

The people who control our council make important decisions that affect our lives. It is really important that they hear from Disabled people about the challenges we want them to take action on, and that we hear from them what their plans are to promote our rights and provide services that are fair for Disabled people.

Your voice is important. Let’s use this opportunity to make Bristol a better place for everyone.
