  • Call to 'Be Kind' to People Who Are Exempt from Wearing Face Coverings

    Call to 'Be Kind' to People Who Are Exempt from Wearing Face Coverings

    The government has produced new guidance and a new range of exemption cards calling for the public and businesses to be mindful of and act sensitively towards people who are exempt from wearing a face covering. This comes at a time when charities are asking the government to listen to and better understand the concerns of disabled people and to do more to promote awareness around who is exempt from the face mask rules following reports of disabled people facing hostility from the public and businesses. Please get in touch with us to let us know about your experience, whatever it is, and if we can help at all by contacting a service provider on your behalf or helping you to report any incident where you felt threatened.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

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 :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
