You are welcome to come along to a meeting, particularly if you have an interest in disability; either due to having a disability, caring for someone with a disability or through the nature of your job role.
The main aims of the Network are to raise awareness of disability and to act as a contact point for staff with a disability, providing a safe space and informal peer support and information. The Network meets quarterly and from time to time arranges events to raise awareness of disability.
A competition was run amongst the staff in HSC Regional Organisations to suggest names for the staff disability forum. Of the many suggestions, the working group felt that Tapestry was a fitting reflection of what the Network represents: the intricate and complex interactions of people.
The Tapestry Disability Staff Network is open to anyone who works in the regional HSC organisations who has an interest in disability.
