Life for people with disabilities will be the subject of an open afternoon in Cromer next week.

The former Norfolk Coalition of Disabled People, which has just re-launched itself under the name Equal Lives, is holding the event in Cromer Parish Hall on Tuesday April 23 from 3pm-6pm.

The organisation is inviting people to come along and have their say on matters facing disabled people.

Visitors can find out more about Equal Lives, including the services and support available and how to get involved in a variety of activities.

Shaun Hobbs, chairman of Equal Lives, said: 'This event is an important milestone which will set out how we are addressing the latest challenges affecting the lives of our members and service users such as the 'bedroom tax', benefit reforms, and difficulties accessing statutory support and social care services. We hope that the event will be useful, thought-provoking and enjoyable and want to encourage people to come along.' There will be a presentation at 3.30pm and people are welcome to attend all or part of the afternoon.
