Choice & Control

Talking about choice and control: opportunities and challenges for disability activism and advocacy in the contemporary moment

Disability activism and advocacy is critical to ensure the rights and lived citizenship of people living with disability as well as those supporting them. This is particularly important in in the contemporary move toward personalisation and individualised funding. however resourcing and political support for systemic advocacy is more precarious than ever.

Join us to hear from a panel of experts engaged with self and systemic advocacy as well as participatory research to discuss the risks and challenges but also the opportunities facing communities today.

The session aims to disrupt assumptions about disability, citizenship, and social care and support markets, acknowledge current constraints on advocacy, and explore some of the innovative ways in which people with disabilities and advocacy organisations are organising to promote rights and everyday citizenship in the current policy and funding environment.
