Changing perceptions through open conversations.
What is We Are All Disabled?
Almost everyone has something that potentially limits their ability to fully participate in society. WAAD is a CIC that exists to bring people together to explore, challenge and change perceptions of disability.
Through coming together and embracing our unique strengths and identities we can all learn to celebrate our differences and feel pride in who we are.Read our full mission statement
We Are All Disabled is the brainchild of Dr Lucy Reynolds, a public speaker, academic researcher, blogger, and advocate for disability rights. It began life as a blog which Lucy started writing in 2020 in response to the Covid pandemic where people suddenly found themselves in lockdown and unable to fully participate in society.
Lucy saw this as an opportunity to open up the conversation around the fact that many disabled people experience prejudice and marginalisation in their day to day lives. Not just during a government lockdown.
We Are All Disabled was awarded CIC status in July 2021 and as an organisation aims to bring people together from across disabled and non-disabled communities to explore, challenge and change perceptions of disability.
