Thankyou for visiting our website- we are now in UK DISABILITY HISTORY MONTH 2013! The theme for this year is Celebrating our Struggle for Independent Living: No Return to Institutions or Isolation.
Here are some recent articles about Disability History Month:
Our Coordinator Richard Rieser has created a fantastic resource which explores the history of this year’s theme. It is free to download or you can purchase bulk copies from our shop.
This year we have also partnered with the National Union of Teachers to produce a resource pack for teachers. http://www.teachers.org.uk/node/19648
Please have a look on our events page to see what is going on around the UK and the 'discover our history' page for more info and resources.
We hope you enjoy our site and feel inspired to learn more about disability history history – Let’s celebrate disabled people’s achievements, explore our struggle for independence and human rights, and use it to learn from our history and challenge disableism!
