Hello, and welcome to the home page of
What is Our Version of Events?
Our Version of Events (or OVoE for short) is a fully constituted user-led organisation set up by adults with disabilities, for adults with disabilities. The group are working together in collaboration with Hand in Hand Activities to develop age appropriate services and activities, along with opportunities to develop their skills and enhance their life experiences through social nights, sporting activities, reading groups, days out and creativity sessions, to name a few. We are continually working to expand the range of activities we offer and work closely with all of the group to meet their needs.
The membership is open to people aged 18 years and over with a disability. If you would like to find out more about the membership please email OVoE or alternatively you can download the membership form. Membership costs £7.00 per year to cover the administration costs. Members can access activities at a discounted rate compared to non-members. There will also be members only activities.
To find out more about our upcoming activities check out our Facebook Events page, where all of our activities are in the events calendar.
Since signing their Constitution in March 2013 the group have been finalists in the Catalyst Awards in the category of ‘Community Group’ (see our pictures here), and were recognised in the Stockton-on-Tees Mayors Annual Civic Awards (see our pictures here). The group were also shortlisted in the Equality North East Awards 2014 under the category of ‘Groups That Have Made A Difference’ (see our pictures here). We hope to expland on this on 2015.
