Nothing About Us Without Us!
What is this?
Camden Disability Action is working to promote a partnership with the London Borough of Camden to coproduce new solutions for the disadvantages experienced by Disabled people and those with long term health conditions in the labour market.
It is essential and right that those people who have first-hand experience of this labour market disadvantage on account of health and disability to lead the way on the design of the solutions.
Most services and policy responses (generally speaking) are not designed or delivered by the people that need and use them.
This is an important opportunity to change the welfare to work ecosystem and respond to the disability employment gap – putting power in the hands of local residents to design and deliver solutions to important social problems.
How will it work?
We are asking people who have lived experience of long term health conditions or disability to come forward and join in.Nothing About Us Without Us
