We Celebrate Disability History Month

Community Integrated Care was proud to celebrate Disability History Month, when we attended a special reception at the Commons Speaker’s House in London.

At this important event, which was hosted by Speaker of the House, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, key politicians, disability advocates, and organisations supporting disabled people came together to recognise the history of disabled people across the UK.

Our Director of Partnerships and Communities, John Hughes, was delighted to attend the event, alongside Rebekah Adey, Interim CEO at Age Exchange.

We were also pleased to be joined by Dylan, a member of our Learning Disability Super League (LDSL), and Kellen Wood, his coach at Widnes Vikings. This celebrated some of Dylan’s incredible achievements, having won the Matt King Educational Bursary Award, to support him to pursue his dream of coaching the Widnes LDSL team.

John said, “As a charity that was founded to challenge the exclusion of disabled people, we understand the importance of Disability History Month in celebrating progress and highlighting how much further society needs to travel.”

“It is fitting that we celebrated this event with the RFL. Community Integrated Care’s work with Rugby League has given many people the chance to live their dreams, enjoy personal progress, and find the support that they need. It has challenged prejudice and championed inclusion. It represents the power of communities coming together.”

We’re grateful to have been invited to this fabulous event. To find out more about how our partnerships are championing inclusivity, click here.
