We are a member-led organisation which works with its members in a mutually beneficial way to promote equality for disabled people in Scotland.
We rely greatly on the support of our members, and our members are the voice of disabled people in Scotland.
There are two categories of membership available. Our membership is FREE.
Open to all organisations that can meet at least two of the criteria below:
|Open to all people with a disability or with a personal involvement in disability|
|Each corporate member has one vote at our Annual General Meetings||Each individual member has one vote at our Annual General Meetings|
Support and Signposting
We answer many member enquiries and signpost them to the appropriate organisation, individual or information source.
We make introductions to key decision makers and contacts and make sure members have frequent opportunities to meet and network with relevant audiences. We help members make the right connections.
Your views, experiences and expertise
All our policy is formulated directly from our member views, experiences and expertise. We believe that our members are the experts.
We respond to all relevant Scottish Government, parliamentary, think tank and other consultations.
We regularly ask our members for their views on many diverse policy issues – which then directly feeds in to our policy work and government consultation responses.
Annual General Meeting
Our Annual General Meeting is an opportunity for members to participate in the governance and representation of SDEF. Members will be offered the opportunity to attend members meetings, and where eligible, vote in elections and to stand as candidates themselves. Support will be offered to members to enable them to fulfil their democratic responsibilities.
