Disability History Past and Present

Disability History Past and Present

UK Disability History is now in its twelfth year and takes place from 18th November until 18th December 2021.

UKDHM is an annual event creating a platform to focus on the history of disabled peoples’ struggle for equality and human rights and to build resources on various themes.

Their Joint themes in 2021 are:

Disability and Hidden Impairments
“Many disabled people have an invisible/hidden impairment now and in the past. They have not been viewed as disabled people but still been mistreated. Equally because of the negativity associated with impairment, many who can pass as non-disabled have chosen not to identify, even though this has caused them many difficulties.”

Disability, Sex and Relationships
“More confident generations of young disabled people are finding the joy of diverse sex and relationships with partners of their choice, but the lack of self-esteem that comes with a disempowering approach to disability can still cause huge harm including consent issues and abuse”

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.

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

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 :)
