If you are a Disabled person living in Bristol, or you are an organisation working with or representing Disabled people, this is your chance to come and ask the person who will be Mayor of Bristol your question.  Hear what the four main candidates for Bristol Mayor are going to do for Disabled people, and what their answers to Disabled people’s questions are.

We are working on organising this mayoral hustings with Bristol Sight Loss Council, Bristol Reclaiming Independent Living (BRIL), Centre for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People, the Independent Mental Health service user Network (IMHN) and WECIL.

The hustings will take place on Wednesday 28th April from 7.00-9.00 pm. The meeting will be a Zoom meeting.

The candidates from the four main parties – Conservative, Green, Labour and Liberal Democrats – have been invited to talk about what they will do on issues that particularly affect Disabled people. Then they will answer questions Disabled people and their organisations have sent in.

The candidates will only be asked questions that have been sent in, in advance.

The closing date for booking your place and sending in your questions is 12.00 pm on Monday 26th April. You do not have to attend to have your question asked, but priority will be given to those people who attend the evening.

We hope you can join us!
