Speaking up for Disability

Nicola Benge from Strike a Light gave a presentation about a project she is currently coordinating last week, at the Independent Living Association AGM in Worthing, West Sussex.

The project is Speaking up for Disability and concerns chronicling the heritage of disabled people and their carers across West Sussex from the 1940s to the present day, through oral histories, a website, an exhibition and a new disability archive to be housed at West Sussex Records Office.

Philippa Thompson, the Chief Executive of Independent Living Association said:

‘Thanks, too, to Nicola for the Speaking up for Disability presentation. Your hard work and commitment to the project really came across and I’m excited about looking at sustainability options and future plans.’
