North Yorkshire Disability Forum

Logo 2020_0.PNGNorth Yorkshire Disability Forum (NYDF) aims to improve the lives of people with physical and/or sensory impairment in North Yorkshire.

It is supported by North Yorkshire County Council to provide a collective voice for disabled people to inform the strategy and service development of NYCC and other statutory bodies to raise awareness of accessibility for disabled people, and to improve access across North Yorkshire. 

Terms of Reference for the North Yorkshire Disability Forum can be found here. 

Code of Conduct for the North Yorkshire Disability Forum can be found here.

The NYDF meets quarterly, bringing together representatives from five local user-led forums across North Yorkshire. This includes:

1. Craven Disability Forum
2. Harrogate District Disability Forum 
3. Ripon Disability Forum
4. Selby District Disability Forum (SDDF)
5. Yorkshire Coast and Ryedale Disability Forum (YCRDF)

Contact details and meeting schedules for local forums can be found here

NYDF and local disability forums are chaired by independent volunteers, each with lived experience of disability and the majority of members are also people with lived experience of disability. Guests including local authorities, service providers, health and other professionals may attend meetings based on member requests.
