Consultation and Events Diary

The ILF realises that speaking to service users, disabled people and groups representing disabled people is the key to continuous improvement and development of the organisation.

As well as our own events (User Group meetings and regional roadshows) we have exhibited at events organised by others, taken part in disability conferences and held meetings with disability groups. 

The Consultation and Events Diary lists where we have been and who we have been talking to*, as well as future events.

If you would like more information about upcoming events, or our consultation work in general, please feel free to get in touch with us.

You can contact the Jon Duckworth or Jane Jephson, Public Communications Managers on 0845 601 8815 or email

*Please note: although every effort has been made to include noteworthy meetings and events, the list is not exhaustive.
