Ensuring that disabled people have the rights and respect they deserve, we’re proud to have been awarded a National Lottery grant. With this money, we’re launching a brand new project for International Women’s Day.
We’re ‘Celebrating Diversity and Disabled Women’, and we want you to celebrate with us.
How can you get involved?
Nominate an inspirational disabled woman that you would class as your hero. Perhaps it’s someone from your own family, a famous woman or a historical figure? Maybe it’s your best friend, your child’s teacher or your next-door neighbour?
Inspirational women are all around us, doing wonderful things every day. They’re changing the world, fighting for inclusion, or simply doing what they’ve always done with a smile that never leaves their face. They’re struggling through but never giving up, or setting aside their own concerns to look after other people. These are women doing great things in spite of their disability, or amazing things because of it. There are so many ways to be an inspiration, and we’d like to hear who inspires you.
Submit your inspiration!
To nominate an inspirational disabled woman, all you need is a photograph. Then, add a few words to tell us who you’ve chosen to nominate. What’s their name? How do you know them? How are they inspirational? You can do this on the form at the bottom of this page.
We’ll be displaying the photographs at a community event on 6th March, to coincide with International Women’s Day 2020 on the 8th. More details about our chosen venue will be available closer to the time.
What are you waiting for?
If a name has come to mind whilst you’ve been reading this, then don’t they deserve recognition? Inspirational disabled women deserve time to be the centre of attention.
Show someone that you’re proud of them, or tell everyone who’s made a difference to your life, by nominating your chosen woman. We can’t wait to see their photos on display at our exciting celebration.
