We are a membership and user led organisation, run and controlled by disabled people. We promote independent living for disabled people in Sheffield. By independent living we mean that disabled people have the same freedom and rights to exercise choice and control over their own lives as any other person.
Disability Sheffield helped organise the annual “Reclaiming Our Futures Alliance” national conference in Sheffield for the second year running. We feel it’s important for local disabled people and disabled people’s organisations (DPOs) to feel part of the collective voice of disabled people and we value the idea behind ROFA where disabled people can unite and defend our rights together. The conference was entitled ‘Uniting our Voices & Defending our Rights’ and explored how we can defend and progress disabled people’s vision of rights, inclusion and equality.FULL ARTICLE
