This Thursday (3 December 2020) is a special day for disabled people worldwide as we come together to celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.  

This annual event, organised by the United Nations, draws attention to the inequalities disabled people endure and pushes for a more inclusive environment to benefit all.

Amplifying our disabled members voices

To mark this special day, we asked our young disabled members to share their personal blogs with us so we could promote them more widely.

However, the response we received was so enthusiastic that we wanted to include everyone today, and not just those lucky young chicks who happen to be under 25!

Therefore, in no particular order, comes a list of blogs from some regular faces that speak to the reality of being disabled in 2020 and the fight for equality that still exists.

Members blogs

Chloe Tear – Our @Chloe_Scope kicks us off with her award-winning disability blog covering life with Cerebral palsy, visual impairment and everything in-between.

Undercover Superhero – New mum @Ami2301 shares her story of becoming disabled and the highs and lows of life with multiple impairments.

Xboxmanblog – Sees @MrAllen1976 tell us about his daily life, unlucky lottery ticket run and love for all things gaming and taekwondo.  

Hannah’s Hope – By @HDeakin is a blog covering a variety of topics that she describes as, “being about my journey, supporting others and raising awareness”.

Inclusive Living Concepts – From @Lucy411 is a blog dedicated to her passion for improving inclusion.  Lucy discusses life with Cerebral palsy and employing Personal Assistants (PAs) as-well as a host of other good stuff.
