Independence Street is a project funded by Awards for All. The grant is to support disabled people to become active citizen journalists. We have received training to improve our communication and presentation skills, as well as raising confidence, self-esteem and assertiveness. We’re about encouraging a more inclusive and informed local community.
We are citizen journalists who are keen to promote healthy living activities and increase awareness of disability issues and demonstrate positive community involvement. Through a series of short films, we’re informing and inspiring ourselves to make positive changes and promote independent living. We’re supporting our local community to be more inclusive and stronger by embracing wider diversity.
