I hope my Fixers campaign helps others see that the media should be embracing disabled talent, not excluding it.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
Lisa Hammond, Actress Lisa, who plays the role of Donna Yates in Eastenders and is a disabled actress, has supported my Fixers project. I was able to interview her over Skype to appear in my broadcast piece.
The team at Sorellas With Love have given their backing to my project. They allowed us to film scenes for my broadcast piece at the salon.
Thank you also to Kay Crimmins who provided help on the day of my broadcast shoot and to Terry Croker who attended a screening of my film and took part in a focus group that was filmed for my TV piece.
On Saturday 16th August I appeared on Sky News. I was featured on the show to discuss my message and my continuing campaign to see more people with disabilities in mainstream media. Watch the segment below!
My Fixers film was posted on the Upworthy website! Click the link below to see.
April 2014 Here is some feedback I have received for my Fixers campaign.
‘This information is so well put together Chelsey.I would never doubt that you will help make a difference to people with disabilities. You’ve already done so much in such a short time. Keep up the good work!’
