Who we are
We are a group of islanders, and their families, sharing our stories of living with disability in the island of Guernsey. We began doing this in 2013 to help inspire our government (the States of Guernsey) to pass the first ‘Disability and Inclusion Strategy’ for the island, which includes creating a law to protect disabled people and carers from discrimination.
Now in 2016 we are relaunching the campaign to continue to raise awareness around the Disability and Inclusion Strategy, not only to for the States of Guernsey but the Community as a whole. Our next campaign in Summer 2016 is focused on Hidden Disabilities.
Social attitude change is one of the many barriers to living with a Hidden Disability. Here we share our stories about living with a Hidden Disability to raise awareness and encourage that change.
For an introduction into the We All Matter, Eh? campaign watch our compilation video from 2013 where a group of islanders, and their families, share their stories of living with disability in the island of Guernsey.
We record our stories as a collection of videos to give an insight into living with a disability in Guernsey. Please watch and share the videos to raise awareness.
