The GDA and Deputy John Gollop are part of a Steering Group working together to support Emilie Yerby (States Disability Officer) as she finalises Guernsey’s first ever Disability and Inclusion Strategy.
Emilie and the Steering Group are currently presenting an outline of the Strategy to States departments to get their initial reaction. Emilie is also putting together a plan of action to start the implementation of the Strategy and working out the costs of its different parts.
On April 12th the Social Policy Group (part of Policy Council) will decide if the Strategy is ready to proceed to the States for debate. If they decide it is, it will be debated at the end of July. If you would like to find out more about the Strategy please contact us.
