In 2021 we were given funding to run Disability Solidarity both online and in Essex.
The feedback we got from our participants was positive. Highlights were speakers, support for each other, crafting sessions and even sharing books and recommendations. We had a lot of laughs which is brilliant for wellbeing too. When we ran a poll the two top-ranking positive things people said they were getting from participating were feeling less isolated and having a laugh!
When we asked for project feedback 100% of participants said they wanted Disability Solidarity to continue. We are going to have a little break to recharge and hopefully be back in 2022. If you are interested in joining the group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or click here for the closed Facebook group.
We also produced a short video to publicise the project and help recruit new potential peer facilitators to spread and sustain the much-needed Disability Solidarity into the future.
