Bringing disabled women together, mobilising
and sharing through lived experiences

Independent Living Project

We are excited to announce we are starting a independent living project – on what it means to disabled women – with thanks to the Smallwood Trust and the National Lottery Community Fund

From January to March 2021, we will be focusing on asking disabled women on how they regard independent living, how they access it to help them achieve resilience through the pandemic and beyond. Are there solutions – how do we connect with each other for peer support and influence policy in bringing our voices together and forging a different future for ourselves.

We will have a webinar and focus groups using online platforms while there are constraints of COVID19 and using other accessible means of communication. We hope to have videos and will explore possibilities together.

Alice Armstrong (coordinator) and msunnia (researcher) will be working with us on this project.

Please do take part in this project as independent living is important to all of us as disabled women, whatever our impairment.
