Disability LIB – the alliance of organisations that has provided capacity building support and advice to Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) in England – has published a video on why Disabled People’s Organisations are important.
The film explains how disabled people have brought about significant social change in the last 30 years.
The film is part of the Disability LIB’s video web resource that contains 30 short films about Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) and Capacity Building. The films will be launched at the Disability LIB legacy and learning event to be held on Tuesday 6 September.
The films are divided into 4 sections:
- Disabled Peoples Organisations
- Human Rights, Equality and Campaigning
- Running a Disabled People’s Organisation
The films highlight work undertaken by Disability LIB over the past 3 years (June 08- May 11) and contain a number personal stories about organisational change. They highlight some of the challenges facing Disabled People’s Organisations and celebrate the unique value they have in making sure Disabled People are at the fore front of running their organisations, directing services and influencing and delivering social change that creates inclusive and accessible places to live, learn, work and play.
