Our voice on intersectionality
ALLFIE promotes the inclusion of Young Disabled people in all discussions that relate to their lives. During the Covid-19 pandemic ALLFIE recognised that young disabled voices were being missed, so the ‘Our Voice’ project was created to encourage young people to feel safe and speak up. I have been a part of the ‘Our Voice’ project since its start and have found the sessions incredibly useful and supportive during quite stressful times.
