A training video on starting up a user led organisation (ULO) has been created by Spectrum, itself a ULO run and controlled by disabled people.
The video is based on the real life experiences of groups who have gone through the setting up and early development process. Topics covered include: working out your direction, planning, funding and finance, how to get advice and support. Supplementary learning notes and a funding guide will be available shortly.
See Spectrum news item or direct to ‘Setting Up a User Led Organisation or community group‘ page, with some links to useful resources. From a quick look, this material would appear particularly aimed at starting ULOs for disabled people, but much content will be of wider relevance.
