Greenwich Disabled People’s Innovation Project

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:

Looking forward to being part of a co-creation process to find solutions to problems that matter #OpenThirdSpace

  • Access in your area  – good / bad examples and how to improve access.
  • Making nutritious meals with or without support.
  • Sharing your experiences to influence change.

We are delighted to take part in this project to increase Disabled People’s wellbeing by building stronger networks to raise awareness, increase influence and ensure that Disabled Voices are heard.”

Funding from the Isla Foundation

We are happy and grateful to announce that we got some funding from the Isla Foundation Immeadiate Impact Grant to develop the project on the Intersection of being Disabled and being People of Colour . We are also able to pay the interviewees an honorarium for their time in taking part.

We would be editing the videos into a single edition to build on the message. We hope to have it ready soon!
