A tribute to Joe Whittaker
We are sorry to share the devastating news that our beloved Joe Whittaker has passed. This is a huge loss to his family, ALLFIE and the Disabled People’s Movement.
We have lost a friend, trustee and committed activist who never stopped fighting for Inclusive Education and inclusion generally. He affected us all with his amazing presence, supporting and fighting alongside countless individuals and families in their inclusion journey over many years.
Joe’s legacy will carry on at ALLFIE in his determination to achieve equality and equity for all disabled people. We will continue to fight as Joe would have wanted.
Solidarity to our many members who met and spoke with Joe in the fight for inclusive education. Please reach out if you want to chat, our thoughts and love are with you all at this sad time.
Rest in power dearest Joe
