We All Matter, Eh? focuses on our members voice, providing a platform to share their experiences, to raise awareness of living with a disability locally. Through these stories and insights we hope local Government, businesses and the community will commit to #MakeAChange to reduce the barriers to taking an active part in all areas of island life


Check our our December campaign – Did You Know? which highlights the statistics around disability and carers, and locally support via our member charities.

Did you know

Access Audit course 

This course is aimed at anyone interested in taking their access knowledge to a higher level and gain an understanding of the practicalities of access improvements in light of the the anti-discrimination legislation. Next Course 9th and 10th March 2022

We are a group of islanders, and their families, sharing our stories of living with disability in the island of Guernsey.

We want to raise awareness and change the way the Guernsey Community thinks about disability locally. By doing this we want to bring about greater inclusivity for the 13,000 disabled islanders to access the community, this includes: shops, restaurants & cafes, work, entertainment, education – every aspect of everyday life.
