TUC LESE Disabled Members Network

A reason to join the Disabled Members Network (DMN) is because it is a network primarily set up to exchange information on workers with disabilities, to share best practices within their respective industries. The far and wide ranging industries include Public Services, Transport for London (TfL), Prison Service, Health Workers and the Postal Service. All are welcome and no subject is off limits (within reason) and everyone has the ability to contribute.

Members are encouraged to bring in topical subjects that can assist the majority and minority alike. It is a friendly group, and welcomes new delegates.

Please join and make a difference.
