Take The Chance To Prove We Belong

Take The Chance To Prove We Belong

Do you want to influence government policy? Disability Rights UK wants to hear from as many disabled people as possible about the issues that affect you and the kinds of changes you want to see in society and in government policy.

So this month they have launched their We Belong campaign. As the Government prepares to launch its National Strategy For Disabled People, DRUK says it is the ideal chance to shape the future.

You can tell them your views about what matters by emailing webelong@disabilityrightsuk.org or if you prefer you can send audio or video.

DRUK are also holding a series of online discussions on different themes, bringing together a diverse group of disabled people: experienced campaigners, high-profile disabled people and anyone with something to say. The first two discussions are seeking the views of disabled women and disabled people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.

There are two sessions on 30 September discussing issues and priorities of disabled women, and two on 1 October discussing priorities of disabled people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. The links are below.

Disabled Women, 12 Noon to 1pm 30 September: Eventbrite

Disabled Women, 6:30 – 7.30pm, 30 September: Eventbrite

Disabled people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, 12 Noon to 1pm, October 1: Eventbrite

Disabled people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, 6:30 – 7.30pm, October 1: Eventbrite

More roundtables on other topics will be announced soon, including at least one on employment, one on young disabled people, a session on families and a session on allies. DRUK are also in the process of setting up a separate website for the campaign.

Very good presentation, brave of the speakers to tell their stories and had a very high impact - feedback from Mate/Hate Crime presentation and video session at Safeguarding Working Together Conference

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.
