Campaign: To challenge negative perceptions of disability

I'm disabled - I have a rare lung condition and I can't walk down the road without stopping to catch my breath.

 

I've noticed that people tend to see the negative side of disability and concentrate on the things you can’t do - rather than what you can do.

 

I’ve experienced bullying, judgement and unkindness and this is quite common for people with disabilities.

 

With Fixers I'm challenging these perceptions to show that we have a lot to offer.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
