Tower Hamlets Pan-Disability Panel
The Tower Hamlets Pan Disability Panel (THPDP) provides deaf and disabled people and others interested in disability issues with an opportunity to shape local services. These include housing, transport, education, training, employment, access to leisure, health and support services and many others.
The THPDP provides the Council and its partners with access to people whose lives are affected by disability, enabling them to listen to views and opinions when developing and commissioning services.
Members of the THPDP can commit to regular meetings where they discuss local disability related issues. Themed subgroups meet and work with the wider local community. The themed subgroups then make informed recommendations to the Council and its partners. The subgroup themes are based on One Tower Hamlets and the Community Plan themes.
Members of the THPDP can also get involved in a way that suits them. If they don’t want to make a regular commitment to meetings, other ways to get involved include email, telephone, postal survey and attending focus groups and events. This aspect of involvement is managed by a market research company SMSR on behalf of the Consultation and Involvement Team.
