Accessible Sport & Activities in Guernsey
Led by Karen Blanchford (GDA/Access or All) & Olly Tracey (Onscreen Creations) In conjunction with members, Access for All and The Guernsey Sports Commission.
International Day of Persons with Disabilities
Did you know 3rd December 2016 is International Day of People with Disabilities (IDPwD)? In Guernsey we are encouraging local organisations to dress down on Friday 2nd December
In the summer we will be launching a campaign called ‘Hidden Disabilities’.
The goals are:
1. Raising awareness about disability – especially hidden impairments
2. Change how islanders think about disability
Disability Discrimination Legislation
Guernsey currently does not have any legislation specifically preventing discrimination on the grounds of disability. The UK introduced a Disability Discrimination Act (now the Equality Act) more than 20 years ago.
