Disability Oversight Panel (Camden Council)

The purpose of the Panel is to:
• Discuss key issues for different groups of disabled residents that the Equality Champion Leads have identified through their individual roles following engagement and networking across Camden during the preceding year.
• Hear directly from service users as to their experiences and any recommendations. 
• Hear from appropriate experts including, but not limited to, the Centre for Independent Living.
• Identify issues and areas of exploration to pass to the Joint Chairs of Scrutiny meeting so that key issues for those groups can be considered for regular inclusion on the agendas of the Council’s formal scrutiny committees and for consideration of such issues forming the basis for relevant panel work by the committees.
• Consider further individual liaison with the Chairs of the relevant Scrutiny Committee to ensure that disabled residents are involved in the scrutiny of relevant issues on the agendas to the Council’s scrutiny committees.
• Consider whether other recommendations should be made to other parts of the Council, in particular concerning decision-making which impacts disabled residents.
• Review progress and work undertaken during the year.
