Greenwich Disabled People’s Innovation Project – a new project to increase disabled people’s influence, design resources and improve wellbeing.
Over the next 10 months, the Greenwich Disabled People’s Innovation Project will work with local disabled people in a series of FREE workshops and mini-projects to improve wellbeing by:
- Building new friendships and re-building connections lost during the pandemic,
- Sharing good / bad experiences and suggesting solutions,
- Learning new skills and developing projects using these skills,
- Identifying resources already available and designing new resources,
- Becoming expert representatives to influence matters important to local disabled people and their communities.
“I am excited about the project and how engagement in the workshops can be an empowerment experience and a tool for change in the community“Anahita Harding, Culture Access co director
Workshops will be designed and run by local disabled people, for local disabled people and their supporters and will cover:
