Brighton Adult ADHD Group has been invited to contribute directly to a new cross-government disability strategy. The Government has published a discussion

document with questions and Brighton Adult ADHD Group wants to gather your views, to make sure we represent the experiences of people with ADHD in Sussex.

To share your views please come to our discussion event. We will have a speaker from the Office for Disability Issues.

Date: Wednesday 7th March

Time: 18.30 – 20.00

Location: The Brunswick Room, The Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD

Light refreshments will be provided

We want to talk about practical ideas that will make a real difference to your life. The Government has asked us to focus on three areas:


increasing individual control
changing attitudes and behaviours
increasing individual control


We have made a questionnaire with questions relating to each area that can be downloaded here:

It would be helpful if you could fill in your responses before coming to the meeting, and bring them with you. If you are unable to attend the meeting,

please email your responses as soon as possible to mail@adhdbrighton.org.uk

We will send a report of our event to the Government. They will look at everyone’s suggestions and work with disabled people to publish a new strategy later

this year.
