D.RA.G.O.N’s is an independent organisation and, although works together with Nansa, is not a part of the charity.
DRAGON’s (Disability Real Action Group Of Norfolk) is a group of young people with disabilities that are looking to make sure that services are accessible and that young people are enjoying their services.
The group has done quite a lot of things including: reviewing and commissioning short break services for Norfolk County Council’s Children with Disabilities team, interviews for senior posts in the council, and looking at accessibility for sports facilities. We have recently helped redevelop the Local Offer (Preparing for Adulthood) website. In the last year we have reviewed Norfolk Trails to check that walking routes are accessible and safe; looked at work and transition within day services to ensure young people are supported to gain experience to prepare them for the world of work if they would like to in the future.
If this is something you would like to get involved with or you know someone who would, please get in touch with Sarah Harrison DRAGON’s Project Lead on: 07795 576983 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
