Everything you wanted to know about disability but were afraid to ask Part 3: Let’s talk about the Social Model of Disability: and why that matters!

Webinar on Zoom: Wednesday 7th September 3-4pm


The Social Model of disability has driven much of the successes of the Global Disability Rights Movement. Developed by disabled people it informs many key policy approaches including the UNCRPD. But how much do we know about what the social model means, its importance to disabled people and its practical implications for policy development and investment in the inclusion of disabled people?

Join ILMI for an informative webinar on Wednesday 7th September at 3pm. Our ILMI ONSIDE project Coordinator Peter Kearns will MC a panel discussion featuring disabled activists from Ireland and abroad. The panel will feature inputs from ILMI ONSIDE Disability Equality Coordinator Dr James Casey, disabled activist and author of “The War on Disabled People” Ellen Clifford, ILMI VOICE Community Development worker Paula Soraghan and ILMI Strategies for Change Coordinator Fiona Weldon.

ISL will be provided on the day.

Who is this webinar for? This webinar will benefit anyone who is interested in learning about how building an inclusive Ireland, and why the social model is crucial to informing inclusion. It will be of particular interest to politicians, policy makers, public servants, funders, Community organisations, Trade unions, equality and human rights organisations and disabled activists.
