Hampshire Coalition of Disabled People is an organisation owned and controlled by Disabled People which subscribes to the Social Model of Disability and campaigns for Disability Equality: the full inclusion of Disabled People into the social, political and economic life of society.

We seek to recruit a Disabled Person who can apply Social Model thinking to action, is committed to Disability Equality, has a proven record in the wider Disabled People’s Movement and can provide the necessary skills to implement its ambitious Business Plan; provide leadership; manage projects, finances and personnel; secure resources; and build HCODP’s capacity.

Do you recognise yourself in this description?

If so, then you are the person we are looking for! We believe that the Disabled People’s Movement has achieved a lot, but our rights and liberties are under more threat than ever before.  We believe that it is only through collective action that Disabled People can secure their rights.  We want to make local Disabled People a force to be reckoned with and to link into nationwide campaigns that can challenge the institutional discrimination Disabled People face.

HCODP is committed to the principle of equality of opportunity and welcome applications from Disabled People who are also members of other minority groups.
