The SEEN (Seen, Enabled, Empowered and Noticed) project supports disabled women through group work sessions. We share information, provide peer support as well as raising wider awareness about disabled women’s health issues and improving access to services.
HOPE (Helping Others, Peer Empowerment) is a monthly disabled women’s group with a focus on activism and working together to improve access and services for women with disabilities. The women come together to discuss issues important to them and to look at how they can make wider changes in society.
Feelgood, in partnership with People in Action, offers 6 weekly programmes for groups of women with learning disabilities. These sessions are tailored to the needs of the women but cover topics such as our bodies and relationships.
The project offers –
- Support with transport
- The opportunity for women with disabilities to take part in various involvement or research projects to make sure their voices are heard
- Bespoke group work programmes
