Uniting our Voices & Defending our Rights

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.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
