Disability Awareness

Breaking The Stigma: Disability Awareness Campaign

West Norfolk and South Norfolk YABs are working on a campaign called Breaking The Stigma. This campaign is working towards the following outcomes:

  • Whole school communities will engage in ongoing education to break the stigma around young people with disabilities, and to develop a full understanding of how different conditions affect us all.
  • Young people with disabilities will have equality of opportunity to share in life experiences, which includes exploring attitudes, developing skills and understanding information, enabling positive day-to-day choices.
  • Communities will understand and respect the needs of the individual while encouraging, supporting and celebrating positive abilities within a culture of communication and confidence in relationships.

We are now at the stage of collecting personal stories to help evidence our campaign and to inform where we need to place our focus. If you have an experience, good or bad, that you would like to share, please download the form from this page.
