Did You Know? was the result of a think tank meeting with Lloyds Bank UK, where we shared our challenges around raising awareness around disability in Guernsey. As a team we are around the figures, members stories all the time we realised maybe we weren’t sharing this enough locally – there is still a misunderstanding about the number of people affected by Disability 13,000+ Carers 4,000+ the diversity of hidden disabilities and things like 1,200+ wheel chair users.
It ran deeper with the lack of knowledge about the discrimination that takes place, lack of access and understanding of the barriers to a full life. the Result is our advent calendar style project called Did You Know? please feel free to share widely.
