Nothing about Us without Us

Recently at VALID’s Strategy Planning day, VALID8 Project Worker, Uli Cartwright, talked about the importance of people with a disability being leaders in the disability sector.

Leadership within the disability sector is vital, and the principle of “nothing about us without us” is at the core of our advocacy.

We believe that individuals with disabilities should have a say in decisions that directly affect their lives. Their voices and experiences are invaluable in shaping policies, programs, and services that truly meet their needs.

By promoting and supporting leadership opportunities for people with disabilities, we aim to ensure that their perspectives are included in all discussions and decision-making processes. This includes representation in organizations, committees, and boards that focus on disability issues.

Join us in promoting leadership within the disability sector and ensuring that the voices of individuals with disabilities are heard and respected. Together, we can work towards a more inclusive and equal society for all.
