What we do.
1. Supporting activists.
We listen to organisations of disability activist. They tell us the change they want to make and what they need to make it happen. Together we develop a tailored package of long term support to help activists access the tools, skills and resources they need to make change happen.
2. Building movements.
We support organisations of disability activists to build strong and sustainable organisations that can have an ever increasing impact. We then help these groups connect with each other to build wider movements and we work with them to promote the rights of disabled people.
3. Influencing for change.
We work with organisations of disabled activists to influence governments, international development actors and the private sector to design policies and services at a local and global level which take into account the needs of disabled people.
- We believe disabled people have the right to live their lives as fully as they choose, without the limitations imposed by attitudes or by social and physical barriers. Read our story.
- We believe that disability is not inability if disabled people are given the right tools, opportunities and support. See how we work.
- We believe change comes when voices are heard and preconceptions are challenged. This happens when disabled people come together with a unified voice and engage with society, shifting attitudes towards disability. Read our Strategy & Theory of Change.
- We believe there is an inextricable link between poverty and disability. Disability is both the cause and effect of poverty. This needs to be taken into account when solutions to poverty eradication are being discussed. The cycle of poverty and disability.
