Disability Rights

These groups work to achieve fair and equal rights for people with disabilities, ensuring their opportunities to participate in society, both physically and digitally are unhindered.

By enshrining these rights in law, both domestically and internationally, they work toward a world where being born with a disability, or acquiring one during your life, will not negatively impact your opportunities.

Our mission is to bring together disabled people in Leeds and combat the social isolation and exclusion they face, as well as providing a safe space for the promotion of the ‘three As’: Activism, Accessibility and Awareness. We run several events over the year, as well as a number of projects.
