Many people email us at DPAC wanting to tell their own story about what it’s like to be a disabled person in Britain today. So we’re putting up a place where people who wish to can record their own story.
There are three main categories, about Social Care, Access & Discrimination and about being a Welfare Claimant.
We would also like to collect your stories to use to campaign. For example we may use your story in our blog, in our research reports or we may share it with academic researchers.
You may leave your name or tell your story anonymously, its up to you. We also ask that you include an email address so we can get in contact but you don’t have to leave an email address if you don’t want to.
If you have different stories to tell about more than one subject please fill in the form as many times as you like, once for each subject area
Sometimes we get requests from Journalists who want to interview people on a particular subject such as Social Care. If you give your consent by ticking a box on the form, we may pass on your details to a journalist for a possible interview at a later date, but that is only if you give your consent by ticking the box in the form.
