History of HING
The Hidden Impairment Group was formed as a wide range of organisations came together with a shared interest to raise awareness of Hidden Impairments.
Phase 1 of the work of HING included voluntary sector organisations, government bodies and public sector. DWP took chair position to lead the group initially to develop a toolkit. The toolkit included highlight hints, tips and guidance for working with individuals with Hidden Impairments. Since this phase of work completed in late 2013, DWP has thanked all original members for their contribution and has asked Autism Plus to lead on the work of HING going forward to allow a wider cross-governmental approach.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank directly from HING the following organisations for their contribution to work of HING.
- Autism Plus
- Complex Minds
- Department for Work and Pensions
- Dyscovery Centre
- Dyspraxia Foundation
- National Autistic Society
- Nottingham Asperger Service, Nottingham NHS Trust
- South West Yorkshire NHS Foundation Trust – Adult ADHD Service
- The Adsetts Partnership
- Transport for Greater Manchester
- West Yorkshire ADHD Service
The commitment of these organisations has been integral to the development of HING and the progress made to date. We would like to truly thank each and every one of them for their contribution to this agenda.
For the next phase of work HING is looking at a much broader range of members to allow us to continue progress with our work. If you would like to find out more about how you can become a member of HING then please click here for information.
