People in the UK with disabilities today face equality issues not just in the workplace, but also in day to day character assassinations of disabled people as ‘helpless, pathetic and fraudsters.’
Here, you will find content that celebrates the contributions of disabled and learning disabled people to our history and identity as Brits, ranging from contributions in both World Wars, to achievements in the Paralympics, Special Olympics and triumphs in the world of fashion as well as content aimed at exposing the myths and stereotypes that the media often portrays about people with disabilities.
We are seeking volunteers of all types to work with us. You can write, create a film or story, suggest ideas for new work and web content, agree to an interview or fundraise for us. You can help us by simply sharing the resources below to like minded friends and family by email or social media. Join us and help us create a truly GREAT BRITISH COMMUNITY.
